Maxine Bernsten one of the finest teachers ever, celebrated her 80th with Bookworm in Goa. We were honored, delighted and excited to play a part in this journey. 

Maxine and only Maxine could have managed by her presence alone to bring together 60 + people from all parts of the country to Goa to celebrate and share in the memory making of a thousand moons. 

Bookworm published a book Threading Texts within Contexts written by Maxine Bernsten and Edited by Jane Sahi and Sujata Noronha to mark this big day and there was a beautiful ceremony of love and friendship that followed.
