In January 2016, I established Makara Center for the Arts, a volunteer-run nonprofit library & art center in my hometown. Makara offers free specialized library services and arts & culture programs to local communities. Visit our website to browse the books in our specialized collection, check out our upcoming programs, and learn how you can support local readers.
