imageimage Look for Red Silk Press at Local Author Day! A charming outdoor book fair held from 1-6 pm at Lafayette Square in Savannah, Georgia, this event for local authors is sponsored by The BookLady Bookstore and Flannery O'Connor House. I will share a table with Rosemary Daniell, founder of the extraordinary Zona Rosa, the writing and living group of which I am a member. We will have her books as well as the three now in MDP's stable: Red Silk Sari - a collection of my poems on living in two worlds:; India and America, science and art, the North and the South, parenthood and childhood. Venusification - science fiction by Joe Demare - 21st century themes in the style of the Golden Age of science fiction. Promiseland - memoir by Avinash Bagal (my father) - a timid young Indian man arrives in the America, and over the years he realizes that wherever in the world he travels, America stays with him.
