Literature in Goa

The programme schedule for the Goa Arts and Literary Festival (Dec 17-21) isn't on the website yet, but I have it on reasonable authority that at 6 pm on December 17 I'll be in conversation with Teju Cole about his hugely acclaimed novel Open City (my review here) and his writing career in general. At some point on the 18th or 19th, I might be speaking for a bit about film criticism. And there might also be a reading from Jaane bhi do Yaaro: Seriously Funny Since 1983 and The Popcorn Essayists. If you're in the vicinity, do drop by and say hello.

(General info about the Goa festival - participants, venue, registration etc - is here)

Update: part of the schedule is online now - here's the link (PDF).


  1. Two of my favorite writers in conversation. Sad that I'm missing this. Hope there will be a recording.

  2. Parmanu: I'm looking forward to this as well - I'm sure Teju will be a very interesting speaker, and I will probably be scribbling notes while our conversation is on! Hope we get a full 45-50 minutes for the discussion.
