Book Club


BEYOND THE BOOK at Alipore

This is a photo of all the members who attended the first meeting of ‘Beyond the Book’ which forms the Alipore arm of the lsg book club.

The 7th July meeting was a vibrant one where about 25 members actively participated to enter the world of the Tagores of Jorasanko. The book provoked diverse emotions towards the most well known family of Bengal : pride, sadness, perturbation, uneasiness, curiosity… some even dreamt about those mansions!
