To read or not to read: Yes, even if only for its subject – life under Khmer Rouge in Cambodia.
To read or not to read: I don’t know. I can’t judge or review this book. Listen to someone more qualified.
To read or not to read: Yes, if you like a feel-good love story.
To read or not to read: Not for the beginners. If you know something about the tumultuous modern History of Cambodia and are in a mood to go deeper, then you can pick up this book.
To read or not to read: Not unless you are a lover of poetic writing for the heck of it, or you are on a mission to read all award-winning books.
Have you read a book and are craving to chitchat about it 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 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.
There will be refreshments and swags courtesy Worth A Read.
Venue: Pothi.com, #634 (Ground Floor), 5th Main, Indiranagar 2nd Stage, Bangalore – 560038
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:
- 3-word Sentences and Intellectual Property @ BYOB Party in September 2016 (Part 1)
- Dystopia and Young Adult Fiction @ BYOB Party in IIIT-Delhi in September 2016 (Part 2)
- Internet Privacy and a Hacker’s Story @ BYOB Party in July 2016 (Part 1)
- Kaizen, Suitable Boys and Stories of Sikkim @ BYOB Party in April (Part 3)
- Classics, Beauty and Paranoia@ BYOB Party in March, 2016 (Part 1)
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?
I have more questions. Who do I contact?
Shoot an e-mail to firstname.lastname@example.org.
Okay! I am ready to come. What do I do?
If you are not on meetup, you can also RSVP on Explara.
