Melbourne: Two well known Sri Lankan writers’ books were launched in Hume Global Learning Centre at Craigieburn on April 27. The Hume Council Mayor Cr. Geoff Porter was the chief guest and Councillor Chandra Bamunusinghhe who is Sri Lankan born gave a helping hand for the success of the function.
Over seventy people participated in the books launch event and some of them were from Sydney. Dr Nadesan’s ‘Lost in You’ a book in English and ‘Butterfly Lake’ in Sinhala language were published in Sri Lanka in January this year. Mr Murugapoopathy’s ‘Shadow of Memories’ published in Sri Lanka this year was also launched.
The three books have been popular among the expatriate community of Sri Lankans living in Victoria. More than one hundred thousand people of Sri Lankan origin live in Victoria including a large number in Craigieburn.
Launching the books, Mayor Geoff Porter said, “the books are very important part of our
life and we are learning so much from them.”
