The further adventures of Jaspreet Singh

Jaspreet Singh, author of the award-winning Seventeen Tomatoes: Tales from Kashmir, has wrapped up his year as the 2006-07 Markin-Flanagan Writer-in Residence at the University of Calgary. Jaspreet Singh (right) can be seen here meeting poet Derek Walcott (left) during Walcott’s visit to the university.

So what’s next?

Singh will be returning to Montreal for a public reading of his play Elephants, presented by Infinitheatre as part of their Pipeline play reading series. Elephants will be read at Bain St-Michel (5300 St-Dominique) on Friday, November 30, at 8pm. Cost is pay-what-you-can.

Véhicule Press is also pleased to announce Singh’s anticipated first novel, Chef, to be published as part of the Esplanade Fiction imprint of Véhicule Press.

We look forward to Chef, and we look forward to seeing Jaspreet when he visits Montreal!
