Bangkok’s Second Literary Festival by Michael LaPalme

Photographer Michael LaPalme shot my talk (together with co-author and photographer Aroon Thaewchatturat) on Sacred Skin at the Neilson Hays Library during the second Bangkok Literary Festival.

It had been a while since our last talk on Thailand’s sacred tattoos and I had a great time re-engaging with our book and an audience.

I also really enjoyed Philip Cornwel Smith‘s talk on Thailand’s hybrid culture and hope that this fledgling event will continue next year and offer an equally eclectic selection of writers.
