Dear Readers,
 
                           THE TROUBLE WITH TRUTH…
                                   …is that it hurts
 
But then so do lies, as Ela,
the protagonist of Sampurna Chattarji’s new Young Adult novel, discovers.
 
Join the author SAMPURNA CHATTARJI 
theatre person and Junoon co-founder SAMEERA IYENGAR 
and arts-based therapy practitioner and teacher TIMIRA GUPTA 
in a discussion about growing up, the trickiness of adolescence, 
the traumas of truth and lies 
and the healing power of fiction and fantasy.
 
Young Adult PRANAV MEHTA, avid reader, reviewer and budding writer, will moderate the evening which will include readings from the book and, we hope, an animated interaction with the audience of all ages!

Where: Kitab Khana, Ground floor,
