WHAT IS LIT DINNER?
Simply put, a small gathering of folks who love food and / in / around literature. KathaSatha and Everfresh by nuwa estate coffee are teaming up to serve you a delicious 3-course meal curated with select dishes and drinks featured in the evening’s literary text. For our first lit dinner, we will be eating with the characters of Shradha Ghale’s debut novel, The Wayward Daughter. Shradha will also be attending the dinner party.
WHY LIT DINNER?
Have you ever read a book that has left you hungry? We have!
All great works of literature have food, and it’s no mere accident. What we eat says a lot about our cultures, identities, histories, place, time and class. When we create recipes around the food that a story’s characters eat, we engage and experience the text in a more meaningful and memorable way. lit dinner is about bringing literary texts to the table and sharing with one another new foods and moments from the book. And also, we love a good literary party.
DO I NEED TO READ THE BOOK BEFOREHAND?
Not at all! This is not a book club. But the author will be reading parts of the book throughout dinner. So please come hungry for food and words!
IS THERE A DRESS CODE?
No. Be comfortable. We suggest elastic waist bands. Or, no waist bands at all. AND, should you wish to dress the part of a 90s kid from Kathmandu, you will be king (forever).
HOW MUCH FOR THIS LIT FARE?
Just Rs. 1,500 per person for the entire evening that also includes one alcoholic/non-alcoholic welcome drink. Extra beers and wines will be available for purchase at dinner.
