Sri Lanka Diaspora Benefit Reading
I will be participating in a reading and discussion as part of reading series organized by Sri Lankans Without Borders, with a view to contributing to inter-communal dialogue within the Sri Lankan diaspora, as well as the process of reconciliation. Proceeds from this series will be donated to children’s literacy programs in the Aboriginal community in Canada and rural communities in Sri Lanka. The program also supports PEN Canada in its efforts to promote the freedom of expression of writers in Sri Lanka.
