“One of the top 10 parties to look forward to!” – 24 Hrs
Glamorous guests, fine sips and delectable nibbles curated by Vikram Vij - the Indian Summer Festival Opening Gala is one of the city’s most sought after summer parties.
In a tribute to the Roundhouse’s history as the home of Canada’s great steam locomotives, the gala transforms into The Great Railway Food Bazaar. Vikram Vij challenges some of Vancouver’s top chefs to create Indian-inspired street food. Bringing to life the railway station theme is the work of award-winning art director Aradhana Seth (The Darjeeling Limited). The evening also features a lively outdoor stage featuring special musical acts.
Be warned – tickets sell out early and there will be no ticket sales at the door. Ticket includes food and a complimentary beverage.
The Ever After: Memories, Silences, Traumas
Friday, July 10 at 6pm
SFU's Goldcorp Centre for the Arts
149 West Hastings St.
How do you go on when tragedy strikes? How do you heal wounds the size of a nation? In this special event co-presented with the Banff Centre, Padma Viswanathan and Jaspreet Singh, two of Canada’s most brilliant literary stars, venture into territory people most often wander alone.
Padma Viswanathan’s Giller Prize nominated novel The Ever After of Ashwin Rao is set among families of those who lost loved ones in the 1985 Air India bombing, and looks at the reverberations of this tragedy in the lives of its survivors. In Helium, Jaspreet Singh leads us into a fictional exploration of one of the most shocking moments in the history of the modern Indian nation, the anti-Sikh riots of 1984. Teasing out the tangled intersections of family, love, politics and violence, the novel looks at how one man confronts the guilt and responsibility for one of the most shameful events in his nation’s history.
Listen to these two gifted writers explore memory, collective silences and personal trauma in conversation with Devyani Saltzman, Director of Literary Arts at the Banff Centre.
“It brought back memories of what I saw and went through myself… This is a book that must be read.” – Khushwant Singh, on Helium
“Deftly written, constantly interesting, morally serious yet sympathetic--I challenge any reader to start reading this book and give up on it.” – Yann Martel, on The Ever After of Ashwin Rao
