In Kerala capital? You may want to walk the high street of books

Thiruvananthapuram: Manaveeyam Veedhi, the cultural corridor in the city, will play host to a street book festival from February 8 to 12. The festival being organized by the city corporation will have book stalls from different publishers on either side of the road, a space for cultural performance and a cafeteria. 

A host of cultural programs, ranging from exhibition of mural paintings and magic shows to the staging of dramas, would offer a feast for art lovers, the corporation said. Eminent poets Sugathakumari, V Madhusoodhanan Nair and Prabha Varma are expected to take part in the cultural meeting on the inaugural day. Experts from different fields including media, film, literature and culture would participate in the discussions to be held along with the book festival.
