Have you ever read a book and wondered, what if the end had happened differently? Why that cliffhanger of an ending? What inspired the author to write this book? How much of the book is real? What went into the making of your favourite book? To answer all these questions we present you Literathon.
In a first of its kind event, INDIAreads.com, an online library and bookstore, in association with the Delhi School of Economics, is launching “Literathon” –a Literature Fest that celebrates books.
Event will start with an interactive sessions on:-
The Secrets of Entrepreneurship by best selling author Rashmi Bansal and international Management Consultant Deepak Gandhi.
Youth as agents of Change by Padma awardee and Member, Planning Commission, Dr Syeda Hameed and her co-author Gunjan Veda.
The day long event will bring to the DU campus renowned authors who will interact and share their views with students. Best selling author Ms. Rashmi Bansal’s new book titled “Poor Little Rich Slum,” written with Deepak Gandhi, will be launched at the event and will be followed by book signing and other interactive sessions.
Dr. Syeda Hameed, Member of Planning Commission and Co-Author of “Beautiful Country: Stories from Another India” will read from her book. Ms. Gunjan Veda, CEO of INDIAreads and Co-Author of Beautiful Country will candidly talk about their new initiative, “Literathon”and about how INDIAreads.com is carving a niche in the domain of books.
The event will also include many competitions and a day long Book Bazaar showcasing an array of best selling books from various genres including fiction, non-fiction, management, political science etc.
