By The Book: Readings KL

For the last 18 years, Readings KL has been running (almost) every month - featuring 6 readers each time, and a dedicated community of literary enthusiasts. We speak to its long-time organiser Sharon Bakar, and current host Sumitra Selvaraj, about the joys and challenges of keeping it all running, and the value of having a space for readers and writers to come together. And then on Footnotes, we discuss our own experiences with reading events.
