    Lynchburg Reads: Indian Cuisine Dinner and Yann Martel Live Video Chat

    An Evening with Yann Martel: Indian Cuisine Lynchburg Reads Dinner and Live Video Chat 

    Life of Pi is at once a realistic, rousing adventure and a meta-tale of survival that explores the redemptive power of storytelling and the transformative nature of fiction. It's a story, as one character puts it, to make you believe in God.
