This month get ready to celebrate Urdu literature as we invite you to the first of many sessions of Joy of Urdu Reading Group.

Joy of Urdu founder, Zarminae Ansari will introduce the session followed by a reading from one of Ismat Chughtai’s play and a discussion on the role of women in the literature of Urdu’s greats - Manto and Chughtai.

Join us at the library with your opinions and participate in this exciting discussion over tea as we reminisce about our Urdu heritage.

About Joy of Urdu:

Joy of Urdu is a bilingual organisation that aims to facilitate and enable the ongoing revitalisation of the Urdu language, in order to reclaim our literary heritage.

The Joy of Urdu Reading Group (JOU-RG) initiative is aimed at creating a space for beginners, and even advanced readers to start (or get back to) reading Urdu. We have Joy of Urdu Reading Groups in different cities in Pakistan and around the world, led by a team of dedicated volunteers who coordinate the meetings with reading guides/ leaders who lead the discussion, and where necessary, read along for the group.

Lovers of Urdu, of all levels of proficiency are welcome. The aim of all JOU events is to encourage you to embrace Urdu, to ask questions, to improve your knowledge of Urdu and be able to understand and enjoy its vast and varied literature.

This event is FREE and is suitable for ages 16 and above.

To register, please email [email protected] with your name, CNIC, B-Form, Passport or Library Membership number.

At the time of visit, participants are to carry their original CNIC, B-Form, Passport or Library Membership Card.

Registrations will close on Friday, 2 March 2018.
