BYOB Party is back and this time it’s at IISc, Bengaluru!
Have you read a book that you are craving to chitchat about with someone? Have a favorite book that you think everyone would love, if only they knew about it? Want to see what others are reading and have interesting conversations beyond weather, traffic, and real estate?
Then come to the BYOB party on January 20th and talk away! Try to avoid a bestseller and if you have a copy, bring it along and read us a passage. All languages are welcome. This time, there is a raffle prize for those who talk about poetry books – the winner takes a book home!
There will be refreshment and swags courtesy Worth A Read.
Venue: Near Choksi Hall, IISc, Bengaluru
So, what really happens at a BYOB Party?
Everyone brings a book and talks about it. Conversations follow and they are good. So are the refreshments!
You can take a look at what happened in some of our earlier parties here:
- Doom and Obscurity @ BYOB Party in November 2017 (Part 1)
- Poetry, Migration and Andaman @ BYOB Party in April 2017 (Part 4)
- Hindi Poetry and Dialogs with God @ BYOB Party in April 2017 (Part 1)
- Peace and Post Offices @ BYOB Party in July 2017 (Part 6)
- Of Mathematics and Mathematicians @ BYOB Party in December 2016 (Part 3)
Do I have to be there for the entire duration of four hours?
We aren’t closing doors or locking you in. But the party is best enjoyed if you are there for the entire duration and listen to people talk about a variety of books. Trust us, you won’t know how time flew.
Do I have to bring anything?
Nothing really. But if you have a copy of the book you want to talk about, you might want to bring it in. Other attendees might want to have a look, or you might want to read a paragraph from it.
I am an author. Can I bring a book written by me?
A good writer should be a voracious reader. It would be preferable if you brought a book you really like written by someone else.
Who are the organizers?
Hosted by Worth a Read.
Co-hosted by The Poetry & Storytelling Team at IISc and Ranade Library.
