Sharon Bakar and I have been discussing about me attending the Readings for a very long time. Basically, writers read from their works at this monthly event held at Seksan Gallery in Bangsar. Commitments, and procrastination, somehow saw to it that I never made it after more than two years. Admittedly, I am not a literary person but I used to read voraciously at one point in time of my life. My favourites are Asian writers with stories of events that are closer to home.
Readings from Readings 2 and Readings from Readings.
When Readings sought funding to publish the second book titled Readings from Reading 2, I jumped at the opportunity to support the initiative. The book and bookmarks came in the mail yesterday. Sharon had kindly included the first book for me too. Both are anthologies of short stories and poems that were featured at Readings which suited my short attention span. The large print is also easy on the eyes. I am sure these are two books I will enjoy reading. They are also available in bookshops now.
