On May 20th, 2017, my series, The Adventures of Munna Man and Baby Lady, was launched at the Karachi Literature Festival London, which was part of the greater Alchemy Festival, an annual celebration of South Asian culture at the Southbank Center, London. It was an amazing experience to be in London again after so many years and that, too, at this historic venue. I'm really grateful to my publishers, Oxford University Press, Pakistan, as well as to the Bloomsbury Group, for arranging for me to be there to share my books with parents and children alike. The session was a lot of fun and included dramatic readings, a colouring competition with some very creative entries, and the distribution of fun buttons and bookmarks!
On the side, I attended various sessions on "grown up" topics and enjoyed an amazing concert that evening by the Pushtun instrumental band, Khumariyaan. Overall, a wonderful experience!
