Join us at 3:30 pm on the 3rd Thursday of the month at Haggen in Barkley Village for the Writers Cafe. It’s a chance to talk and ask questions about any topic relating to writing or publishing.
Topics in January varied from: website issues, the meaning of “literature”, the PNWA’s writer’s contest and more. Debu Mujumdar brought two books he is reading by Nobel Laureates: A Personal Matter by Kenzaburo Oe and Never Let me Go by Kazuo Ishiguro. Ed Farrell talked about his interest in Russian literature and poetry. Rod Haynes announced his photography exhibit at Fairhaven Realty for the Art Walk. We also talked about his civil war historical novel and publishing through university presses. Redd Becker touched on her YA science fiction novels. It was a diverse, lively and informative meeting.
Feel free to join us February 15th. Haggens’ sitting area is almost empty at that time and coffee is only $1.09 with refills. All writers are welcome. See you there, Debu Majumdar and Redd Becker
A tour de force of India's history, religion, culture, philosophy, anthropology, sociology, and politics are neatly packaged as a mystery, await the lucky readers of Debu Majumdar's latest novel, Sacred River: A Himalayan Journey. All elements of this foundational novel are experienced through a well-developed cast of characters, wealthy and poor, educated and illiterate, as they make pilgrimages to the source of Ganges River.

A Journey to the Source of India’s Sacred River
Join Debu Majumdar for a tour of north India, from the plains to the Himalayas. The presentation will be based on Debu's novel, Sacred River: A Himalayan Journey. This novel is based primarily in India - part adventure, part mystery of a gold heist, part spiritual quest. It carries a message of peace and renewal, while evoking travels through the Indian Himalayas, and retelling ancient legends and folk stories. The book gives "a wonderfully vivid flavor of India with all its idiosyncrasies and contradictions." (Barbara Hall, UK). Barbara Lloyd McMichael, Bellingham Herald said, “This sharply observed and richly imagined combination of travelogue, intrigue and philosophical contemplation results in a truly stimulating tale.”
