Reading into Spring
Spring is the time to turn a new leaf. Actually, a couple of them, under the open skies. So, here comes Spring Fever, a 10-day open library project, which promises the freshest of reads amid loads of culture and nature.
In its second year, the library, set up by publishers Penguin India at the India Habitat Centre on Lodhi Road, features a range of titles, from landmark fiction and non-fiction titles first published over a decade ago, to the latest bestsellers and cutting-edge chicklits. What makes it even better is the series of literary evenings, featuring noted authors, books launches and some musical performances.
The affair is all about literature that’s loved by all. From classics such as In the Bazaar of Love: The Selected Poetry of Amir Khusrau, to The Return of the King: Shah Shuja and the first Anglo-Afgan War, different genres will be covered each day.
Michelle, a book lover at the library project, says, “The best part about this event is that I can browse books of my taste and also take part in the interactions with the authors, which makes it interactive.”
