Tejo Tungabhadra — Author Vasudhendra in conversation with translator Maithreyi Karnoor

Join us on Sunday the 20th for a discussion between the author and translator of Tejo Tungabhadra, Vasudhendra and Maithreyi Karnoor! They will be in conversation with Thejaswi Shivanand from Champaca. RSVP here.

The book, translated from Kannada, tells the story of two rivers on different continents, in a sweeping tale of love, ambition, and history. Based in Lisbon, Vijayanagar and Goa in the 15th-16th century, it seamlessly blends narrative with historical fact.

We're very excited to host this conversation at our bookstore in Bangalore! Join us for what will definitely be a delightful conversation.
