About the event
At this month’s Joy of Urdu Reading Group we will discuss the work of legendary Urdu writer, Altaf Fatima.
Arfa Sayeda Zehra will read "Deed va Deed", a collection of short stories by Altaf Fatima.
Participate in the engrossing discussion over a hot cup of tea from the library’s café, as we celebrate and explore the wealth of our language and heritage.
About Joy of Urdu: Joy of Urdu is a bilingual organization that aims to facilitate and enable the ongoing revitalization 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 without feeling inadequate when it comes to your knowledge of Urdu literature or the language.
