Pioneer Book House

If you havent visited the Pioneer Book Shop to witness the artwork then here is the perfect opportunity to do so this Sunday. Karachi Biennale’s weekend event at the Pioneer Book House, Karachi’s oldest book shop.
Pioneer Book House’s ‘Ooppervallee Gallery’
is sparking new conversations this Sunday (29th Nov’17😚), between 3pm and 5pm, that will help Art resonate with people in this part of the world in a manner poetry always has. Pioneer Book House has been a part of our city’s fabric since 1945. This weekend, we invite you to this quaint bookshop to collectively revisit our foremost medium of expression. Four diverse poets will read original texts that grapple with Karachi’s complex influence on the consciousness of those who have experienced this salty maritime city and its many transitions. The event will be bilingual; poets will read in both Urdu and English.
Participating poets: Shakil H. Jafri, Syed Kashif Raza, Aiman Rizvi
and Shameneh Majid.
