Postcard from India

Rachel Trezise sent WLE a postcard from her visit to India.

Postcard reads:

The view from a window at Humayyun’s Tomb where I visited following a Carnegie India event organised by Literature Across Frontiers at the Verdica Scholars programme for women in New Delhi. Later I attended the Mathrubhumi International Festival of Letters in Trivandrum, Kerala, where I read with novelist and playwright, Hannah Vincent and short story writer, Helen McClory. When in the future I think of India my enduring memory will be of a long hot day at Kovalam Beach discussing the works of Roald Dahl and Astrid Lindgren with writers from Latvia and Georgia while the street vendors traipsed along the promenade below, hawking textiles and coconuts.
