ABOUT US

Beginning our literary journey in the summer of 2012, we have come a long way in celebrating people and their beloved styles of literature. Hosting a successful series of enchanting afternoons that involve deep conversations with authors who have a story to share, the venture has become popular for its classy gatherings. Since the first ever event the concept gained acceptance among the audience and became a platform for writers to share their lives and works. An initiative for the love of literature, by the lovers of literature, An Author's Afternoon is now a prized possession of the City of Culture, Kolkata.

FROM THE DESK OF THE PRESENTER

H-M-Bangur
Kolkata has been known to be an avid admirer of literature since ages and the love for poetry and prose dwell alike in the hearts of the people here. Author’s Afternoon to me is a very innovative modern day approach to make literature worthy of conversations with the bests in the business. The meets are a great platform for aspiring authors to showcase their works of art and also for the experienced story tellers to inspire with their creations. I wish the venture more success in the times to come and promise to support the team with all my appreciation.

FROM THE DESK OF THE INITIATOR

I am honoured and overwhelmed at the glorious success of a venture that began as a little effort to celebrate literature with all who are in love with words. As the initiator of this event, I take pride in sharing the happiness of seeing Author’s Afternoon touch lives with its sure lyrical excellence. The entourage of author’s who came to share their lives with us were always greeted with an audience who were all ears to their works of wonder. Nearing the joyous occasion of our 50th session, I wish more such amazing afternoons for the literature lovers of the City of Joy.
