Sharon@Ubud Writers Festival


Fellow blogger and Malaysian literary doyen, Sharon Bakar, was in the Ubud Readers and Writers Festival last week and is now back with an intersting grabbag of anecdotes, articles, and portraits. Friends like columnist and writer Dina Zaman of KL and moderator par excellence Deepika Shetty of Channel NewsAsia, Singapore were also there (waiting for their stories now).

Thanks Sharon for sharing your impressions and memories with us. They are all here:

Opening
Not Just Pretty Faces
More Festival Photos
Islam and Modernity

thanks for linking my posts zafar. it's pretty tough (as you will know0 to have so much good material but limited time and energy to write it up!

thanks also for putting up the photo from the readings the other day. hope you can make it up again. come and join in! (a non-fiction piece is fine too)

and tell your singaporean friends they are welcome too

Grateful to you Sharon as you have brought us such interesting info and pics from the lit fest.

Was a pleasure to attend your reading in KL and sure, I look forward to being a part of it again some day. Cheers!
