Burns supper at Book Fair

Scotland is the theme of Calcutta Book Fair 2009, bringing with it literary, culinary and musical delights under the banner of Scotland-Calcutta Connections.

The Book Fair will begin on January 27, with Scottish author Alexander McCall Smith delivering the inaugural speech. The creator of the popular No. 1 Ladies’ Detective Agency series will also deliver the Ashoke Kumar Sarkar Memorial Lecture at the fair grounds on January 29.

Spanning 4,600 sq ft, the Scotland pavilion at Milon Mela will be curated by the National Museums of Scotland, exploring Scotland’s links with Calcutta. Around 500 Scottish books will be on display and Scottish films will be screened.

The Scottish rock band Red Hot Chilli Pipers will bagpipe their way into Calcutta’s heart with a Tollygunge Club concert on February 6.

Marking the 250th birth anniversary of Scottish poet Robert Burns, a Burns Supper will be on offer at the Hyatt Regency on February 7, serving traditional Scottish fare. You can get a taste of the supper at the Book Fair food court between February 1 and 6.
