Bangamela2015 Souvenir Magazine


A souvenir magazine will be published to commemorate the Bangamela 2015 event. The issue will be distributed to all registered attendees (1 per family) at Bangamela 2015; we are also exploring various options of archiving and distributing this material more broadly (post Bangamela 2015) to online readers globally. We trust you will support this enterprise enthusiastically for the many benefits, not least for the opportunity to expose North American Bengali literary talent to a much wider audience.
