Bengal Lights Books
The aim of Bengal Lights Books is to give Bangladeshi writers a voice so that they can talk about their own culture, their own history and their own issues. At the moment, most that we can read about Bangladesh is written by foreign journalists. Bengal Lights Books publishes Bangladeshis writing in English and translates those who write in Bangla so that they are available to a wider audience.
Read what Moinul Ahsan Saber has to say about our Liberation War or Saad Z. Hossain’s creepy take on Dhaka, where djinn live side by side in a parallel universe with human beings or Samir Asran Rahman’s Zak and Zara horror stories for teenagers.
And Chattogram Language Institute is the outlet where you can buy Bengal Lights Books in the city.
