South Asian Festivals

Two upcoming events of note: the South Asian Literary Theater and Arts Festival in Washington D.C., scheduled for October 1-2, 2005 (it's free!), and Kriti, an exciting conference sponsored by DesiLit November 10-13, 2005 in Chicago. Children's authors at these events include Uma Krishnaswami, Anjali Banerjee, and Pooja Makhijani. (I OD'ed on links today ... Enjoy!)

Why won't you be there?

The organizers of both events graciously extended invitations, but what with the two books I have to finish this fall and several other appearances, I couldn't squeeze either event into my calendar. Sounds glam and busy, doesn't it? I could also have said, "What with piles of laundry to be washed and countless meals to be made around here ..." I do have a pang about missing these great events, though, especially as I'd love to take the bhangra lesson they're offering in Chicago. I'm bhangra-challenged.
