Saturday 6th will comprise Irish Professor of Physics Iggy McGovern, writer and translator Will Stone (Belgium/UK) and, after the break, Siddhartha Bose will present a one-man multimedia show, 'Kalagora' (www.kalagora.com), based on his upbringing in India and London. www.facebook.com/profile.php?id=100001735869768
