Odyssey store's Ashwin has done a great service for city based writers. Showcased their books that are still in pr9int at his Gandhi Nagar store.
And one can already observe the 'oohs' and aahs that the authors have been uttering at this promotion.
At a prominent space in the store, the tables occupy some 30 odd books. Ashwin also offers a cloth bag that features the covers of these books to shoppers who buy two Chennai authors' books!
And on some evenings, young writers have been chatting about their work.
Meanwhile, at least three local theme books are being released. Writer Meera Raghavendra Rao sends us an invite to her ' Madhawas in Madras' book release.
And at Odyssey, I seemed to have sighted the cover of a book based on a Mylapore life experience!
