Book Slam Burma
Book Slam headed to Myanmar for the first time in the company of the British Council to support literary development in a rapidly changing cultural environment. We were humbled to be joined by DR MA THIDA - activist, medical doctor, and author of the extraordinary 'faction', 'The Roadmap' - and poetry icon ZEYAR LYNN. There was also charming lounge jazz from Moe Naing's GITAMEIT JAZZ TRIO (though their maths could use some work - there were four of them) and PATRICK recited his usual doggerel to polite if bewildered applause.
