Goa Masala is a book of stories and memoirs written by Goans now living in Canada, and contains 41 pieces by 33 writers.
The book will be featured in a History Hour presentation scheduled at Porvorim’s Xavier Centre for Historical Research on October 28, 2010 (Thursday)
at 5.30 pm.
Dan Driscoll, a Canadian domiciled in Goa for the past 25 years, (and part of the content team at tambdimati: the Goa review) will comment on his experiences of reading aloud for his bedridden (Goan) wife all the pieces in Goa Masala, with initial emphasis on the biodata of its contributors.
Mr Driscoll, a veteran English Literature teacher and theatre performer, will venture his own choice of favourites for reading — Joan DoRosario’s ‘The Arranged Marriage’, Al Lobo’s ‘Juringa ‘cat-astrophe’, George Pereira’s ‘Why I Miss Zanzibar’ and Alex Rodrigues’ ‘The Hatbox’.
