Book launch: Myth & Memory: Untold Stories of Bhutan, by Tshering Tashi, on Saturday, 18 January 2014

Select Books is pleased to invite you to the book launch of Myth & Memory: Untold Stories of Bhutan, by Tshering Tashi, on Saturday, 18 January 2014, at 4:00pm.

Myth & Memory: Untold Stories of Bhutan
Over the years, Tshering Tashi has developed a uniquely personal style of commentary within the writing scene in Bhutan. Using traditional forms of storytelling to explain the historical background that often “finds reflection in contemporary social conflicts and dilemmas, he thereby encourages a more thoughtful and holistic view of current affairs. His well-researched and in-depth background narratives, subtly connected, add deeper social, political and cultural perspectives to the stories behind the headlines.

In teasing out these historical threads that colour the essence of many current issues, he reminds the reader that the past is father to the present, and that many contemporary issues can usefully be reviewed, discussed, revisited, and possibly redefined with a clear eye on traditional approaches to conflict resolution.

A presentation will be given by Tshering and Wai-ching.

Tshering Tashi is the author of Gongzim Ugyen Dorji the King's Aide, Diplomat par Excellence and Mysteries of the Raven Crown. He co-authored Symbols of Bhutan and Bold Bhutan Beckons. Tshering is a board director of Royal Society for the Protection of Nature (www.rspnbhutan.organd CEO of Jojos Adventure Bhutan (www.jojos.com.bt).
