The Strand Book Festival

The Strand Book Stall, which has become a major institution for book lovers in Bengalooru (as it had in Mumbai a long time ago), has announced its Book Festival. It opens tomorrow (24 November), runs until 10 December, and is open during 10 a.m. - 8:30 p.m.

This time, it's going to be at the Chinnaswamy Cricket Stadium; entrance is through Gate 17 on the Link Road which, from the Cubbon Park, is on the other side of the stadium. The map in Strand's newsletter shows a lot of free parking space on the Link Road and the Cubbon Road. To entice us even further (as if it's even needed), the newsletter promises "upto 80 % off".

Well, that's where I'm going to be this Saturday morning. If you plan to be there Saturday, and would like to meet up, do please e-mail me. I plan to leave the IISc campus at around 10 a.m., if you would like a ride, let me know.
