Wordfest is thrilled to present Shyam Selvadurai, the bestselling, award-winning author of Funny Boy, and his new novel Mansions of the Moon, a breathtaking reimagining of ancient India through the extraordinary life of Yasodhara, the woman who married the Buddha.
The hour-long conversation, hosted by Eric Volmers, starts at 7:00 p.m. MT and will be followed by a book signing. The next day you’ll also receive our Digital Doggie Bag, a handcrafted event recap with bonus extras sparked by the conversation.
We are grateful to Penguin Random House Canada for making it possible for us to connect you in person with Shyam Selvadurai.
Our Collective Safety & Comfort
To provide a community-first return to live programming for patrons, authors, Wordfest staff, volunteers and the venue staff, we will be taking the following precautions.
- Masks are strongly encouraged. We recommend wearing your mask at all times while at the venue when not eating or drinking, including when seated in the theatre and in the post-show signing line.
- Bar Service will be available pre- and post-show to enjoy socially distanced in the lobby or while seated in the theatre.
- We will also offer “London Book Service” as an alternative to the post-event book signing. (Patrons can pre-purchase books through Owl’s Nest Books in advance or at the door and authors will sign these copies prior to the event, allowing pre-purchased copies to be picked up before and after the show from a table separate from the book signing line.)
