We had a wonderful time with all of you who came out to Booknic on August 6.

Our authors were out in force, meeting their audience and giving readings. Kids and adults had fun making their own books. Reader browsed and bought Lekha Books, then sat down to enjoy them.

We at Lekha were delighted to meet friends, new and old, and share our books and authors on a sunny summer afternoon.
