It’s time to pick up your books and go through them the way good bookworms do!
This month, we’re reading Adi Parva by Amruta Patil, a book which tells a tale drawn from the first chapter of the Mahabharat; from the Vishnu Puraan; and from the tradition of oral storytellers.
The timeline is circular. Worlds coexist that are separated by permeable membranes. The cast includes our ancestors – gods, demigods, queens, sages, seers, seductresses, hermits, kings, warriors, and navigators of the multiverse. With a celestial river as its narrator, the Adi Parva has a backdrop that sprawls across heaven and earth.
So pick up your copy now, and come on over for a discussion of this book on the 20th of November at our library space at 6 p.m.
Also, look out for details of Amruta Patil possibly joining us that evening.
As a special pre-order price, the book is available at:
