As part of the Poetry with Prakriti Monthly Series, a reading session with Toronto-based poet, Ayesha Chatterjee was organized this October.
Date & Time: 5th October, 2017 at 7.00pm
Venue: Amdavadi Restaurant
Ayesha read excerpts from her books ‘The Clarity of Distance’ & ‘Bottles and Bones’. While Clarity of Distance dwells on faint childhood memories, Bottles and Bones, her second work, is more about the present and focuses on a quirky, fascinating topic: perfumes.
The following day, as part of the monthly series, SDNB Vaishnav College hosted a reading session with Ayesha for the students of the English department.
