Readings by Contemporary Canadian Writers Series

Reading by Ven Begamudré

Ven Begamudré was born in South India and came to Canada when he was six. He has an honours degree in public administration and a master of fine arts in creative writing. He has held numerous residencies and was the 1996 Canada-Scotland Exchange Writer-in-Residence. His work has appeared in Canada, the United States, the Netherlands, and Scotland. He lives in Regina, Saskatchewan, and has lived in a number of countries including Bali. In Extended Families, his ninth book, he is moved by a trip back to India to explore the history of his unusual family. Through journal entries, memoirs, fiction, poetry and photographs, he reconstructs the story of a South Indian family of Brahmins with a colourful past: they guarded a treasury, built dams and power stations, and became electrical engineers and politicians. Extended Families is more than a memoir. It is a graceful look back at the pull of culture and place on one man's life.
