One of our recent Author Visits was hugely successful: over 125 people attended the Library Event held in the auditorium on July 28th. Kamala Nair read from her debut novel The Girl in the Garden and answered many questions about her writing process, the story itself, and her future projects. It was a great pleasure to hear her read from her work as well. Everyone enjoyed the glimpse of the Indian culture, both in her book and at our event : fabulous foods were prepared by family and friends, Anu Nair, Celia Kamath and Athira Nair and others. The cardamom cake in the shape of Kamala’s book was outstanding, both in taste and appearance!We can’t thank you enough for adding to all our senses that evening.
We were very fortunate to have two beautiful flower displays based on the exotic flowers of India and the book donated by Modern Designs, a local artist who creates with flowers. She kindly provided these two items as a raffle item to some very lucky people! Katherine, the Library coordinator of these events is delivering one of the special bouquets.
The Friends help sponsor these author visits, with their time, flowers, treats, etc. – you may volunteer at specific upcoming events, which promise to be quite exciting (Mystery Tea in September!)
