First Annual IAAC Literary Festival

I attended the first literary festival hosted by the Indo-American Arts Council in New York City at the beginning of November. It was a great experience to hear inspiring readings from so many talented writers. Looking forward to going back next year!


One of the highlights was certainly meeting Salman Rushdie at the closing ceremonies. He was a warm and charming man, very funny. He said he was 67 and I told him that was how old I was when I first started Creative Writing.
