Subodh Sankar will be talking about books in the age of Kindle..drop in if you have time
Books in the age of Kindle.

Print is dying. Digital is surging. Has technology successfully bridged the gap?

Hosted by Subodh Sankar (co-founder of Atta Galatta)

My eyes tire more easily, they say. The batteries run out, the screen is tough to read in sunlight. It doesnt like bathtubs.

Are Kindles/iPads/Nooks really doing well? Maybe not. Is this something to mourn or to celebrate; a triumph of bibliophilia over the new technology or the loss of an opportunity to promote reading. As clumsy as the technology is, it is indeed helpful in different situations.

Many believe that books have an aesthetic quality, that they are more than the sum of their contents. That an avid reader collects them and holds all books dear. Classics continue to sell in handsomely bound volumes and demand for signed copies is unquenchable.

Can we say that literature survives on its own terms in this technological age? Or will technology bridge the gap sooner than later?

About the host:

Subodh Sankar is the cofounder of Atta Galatta, a Bangalore based bookstore/venue for art community, popular for its literary and cultural events.

Earlier an entrepreneur in IT field, Subodh has been associated with Bangalore Literature Festival, the Women's Writer's Festival, and Under 25 Literature Festival, via Atta Galatta.

Outside of work sphere, he is passionate about history and sports.

Do RSVP 8884498121 as this is a limited capacity event.

A fee of INR500 applicable per person.

Is That Even a Country, Sir!: Journeys in Northeast India by Train, Bus, and Tractor, written by Anil Yadav, published by the Speaking Tiger Books has been long listed for the Atta Galatta- Bangalore Literature Festival Book Prize 2017 under the Non-Fiction category.

When violence broke out before elections in Assam in 2000, in which Hindi-speakers from North India were massacred, two out-of-work journalists, Anil Yadav and Anhes Shashwat, decided to go there, braving violence and uncertainty, with the hope that their despatches would make them famous. At that time, they had very little knowledge about Northeast India and no strategy for their trip; they had few contacts and very little money.
