Beware! There may be an elephant nearby.

Literary Delights: Saturday 25th June - 1.30-5.30pm
Trinity Church Centre, 15 Nether Street, N12 7NN.

Vaseem Khan
A light-hearted reading and talk from Vaseem Khan rounds off our afternoon of Literary Delights.  Vaseem will be reading from his debut best-selling novel, The Unexpected Inheritance of Inspector Chopra and talking about writing Book 2 in the Baby Ganesh Detective Agency series The Perplexing Theft of the Jewel in the Crown.

Vaseem first saw an elephant lumbering down the road when he arrived in Mumbai, India, in 1997 to work as a management consultant. This surreal sight later inspired his Baby Ganesh Detective Agency series of light-hearted crime novels. 

Born in London, he studied at the London School of Economics, then spent a decade on the subcontinent before joining University College London’s Department of Security and Crime Science.

Vaseem says that elephants are third on his list of passions, first and second being great literature and cricket, not always in that order. We know that there will be great literature in Finchley, we know there are cricket pitches nearby, but we aren't too sure about the elephants. There may one or two hanging around, so please be on your guard.

This event is the finale of the Literary Delights event. It is free but please
