Local Author Expo (w/Murali Kamma)
Khabar's managing editor Murali Kamma will be there with his just-published collection of short stories, Not Native: Stories of Immigrant Life in an In-Between World. His book focuses on Indian immigrants in the USA. Published by Wising Up Press. For more, please go to www.MuraliKamma.com
“In this exciting and moving debut collection, Murali Kamma explores the immigrant condition with compassion and candor. Readers, no matter what their background, will relate to these characters who are part Indian, part American, and wholly human.”
—Chitra Banerjee Divakaruni, Betty and Gene McDavid Professor of Creative Writing, University of Houston, author of Before We Visit the Goddess and The Forest of Enchantments
What are the Local Author Expos like?
Get ready to read some inspirational stories (both fiction and nonfiction!) from authors in your area!
Parents Love the LAE because...
The LAE is the perfect opportunity to teach children about entreprenuership, the importance of reading as both a skill and a hobby, and the significance of purchasing from people and businesses who are part of the local economy.
Bookworms love the LAE because...
The LAE exposes readers to up-and-coming authors who they can follow and support. You never know what new writing style, story, or genre you'll be introduced to (and fall in love with!).
Writers love the LAE because...
The LAE helps writers connect with one another so that they can help each other along their journey to successful authorship. Knowing people in your field helps you have a support network to draw on when you need guidance, inspiration, or just someone to vent to about creative conundrums! :D
