ULAB Literary Salon in discussion with Saad Z. Hossain, author of ‘Cyber Mage’
The English and Humanities Department at the University of Liberal Arts Bangladesh (ULAB) is organising its second session of ULAB Literary Salon on June 18, 2022, from 5 to 7 pm, at the ULAB Research Building auditorium in their Dhanmondi campus.
In discussion this session is the critically acclaimed novel, Cyber Mage, which will also be launched at the event. 'Cyber Mage' is a new novel by Saad Z. Hossain, who is amongst some of the most remarkable English fiction writers of modern Bangladesh. He has been published by top imprints in South Asia and the world. His novel, Cyber Mage, is proudly published in Bangladesh by ULAB Press.
Saad Z. Hossain will grace the audience at the launch; he will read from his work and discuss his writer's life. Additionally, he will be in conversation with the audience, and will sign copies of Cyber Mage and his other books.
Saad has emerged as a prolific writer of genre-bending literary science fiction and fantasy that uses razor-sharp observations and scathing satire to hold a mirror to our present and future worlds. Saad's other works include the critically acclaimed Djinn City and Gurkha and the Lord of Tuesday (both published in Bangladesh by ULAB Press), his debut novel, Escape from Baghdad (the French translation of which was a finalist for the Grand Prix de L'imaginaire in 2018), and a new series launched with Kundo Wakes Up.
ULAB Literary Salon is the first of its kind literary platform in Dhaka. Once a month, each month, it will offer Dhaka's literary-minded a Saturday evening of book launches by leading authors, book readings, discussions with authors, book signings by authors, and sales of such books at preferred rates by ULAB Lit Salon partners—some of Dhaka's favourite bookstores. From time to time, ULAB Literary Salon will also feature topical discussions with leading writers, editors, and academicians.
Open to all literary enthusiasts, the event anticipates an evening of literary adda with Saad Z. Hossain on June 18, between 5 pm – 7 pm at The Auditorium, 6th Floor, ULAB Research Building, Road 4/A Dhanmondi.
