Lamakaan Programme Council is conducting a book reading session ‘Country Drive’ on December 2 on its premises from 4pm onwards. The book ‘Country Drive’ is a dialogue, a conversation, a meditation on lives lived, a journey across time and space between two poets, Sukrita and Yasmin Ladha, who bring in their unique sensibilities to the subjects they tackle. Yet, their differences are undercut by their familiarity, their love for the country they were born, Kenya, and their travels to each other’s homelands, India and Canada. The result is a unique collection of poems, at once, illuminating, life-affirming and provocative.

Sukrita is an honorary fellow of the International Writing Programme at the University of Iowa. A recipient of the Indo-Canadian Shastri Fellowship, in addition to many other fellowships and residencies, she has published extensively on partition literature, cultural diversity and women’s literature. Yasmin Ladha is a poet, novelist and an essayist from Alberta, Canada.
