Looking for an escape from reality? Hopefully, solving a murder at the mela should suffice.

We are proud to share that we are hosting a series of events at the 2023 Glasgow Mela in the memory of our beloved author, Leela Soma, who passed away last year.

Described as one of the ‘9 Best Contemporary Scottish Books You Need to Read,’ the gripping Murder at the Mela marked Leela’s debut in fiction.

Praise for the novel:’Skilfully blending murder with the realities of race, religion and affairs of the heart’ –  Cauvery Madhavan, author of The Uncoupling

‘Ground-breaking addition to Tartan Noir’ – Norman Bissell, author of Barnhill 

Join us in Kelvingrove Park on 25th June (Sunday) to celebrate BPoC writing in Scotland with an unreal line up of writers and artists. See you there!
