Lekhini Writers Association is conducting an interactive session with Malathi Nidadavolu, on 11th August, at 5pm.

Malathi Nidadavolu is a writer residing in USA. She also translates novels and stories from Telugu to English. The evening features a meeting with her, where she will discuss the prominence enjoyed by Indian writings abroad. Others who are part of the meeting are Dr. Nasa Prabhavathi (President, Lekhini), Sudhama and Dr. Poranki Dakshina Murthy (both of whom are writers). Yaddanapudi Sulochana Devi is the guest of honor at the function.

Malathi Nidadavolu was born in 1937 in Visakhapatnam (Andhra Pradesh), and moved to Madison (Wisconsin) in 1973. Her academic qualifications include a Master’s degree in English Language and Literature, and in Library Science. Malathi has been writing fiction since the early 1950s, and she even majored in it in her MPhil degree (Andhra University, 2003). She was honored at the Andhra Women Writers conference in 1969 and 1970, and also at 2004 at the ATA Conference in Chicago.

She won awards for her stories, Chiruchakram (Small Wheel) and Thrushna (Yearning To Read), and after moving to Madison, Malathi started writing in English as well. Some of her translations have been published in reputable journals, including The Toronto Asian Review, Journal of South Asia Literature, and the Wisconsin Review, and online magazines, too.

Her works include Nijaanikee Feminijaanikee Madhya: 1953-2003, an anthology of her stories in Telugu; A Spectrum Of My People, a collection of short stories based in Andhra Pradesh (a translation); All I Wanted Was To Read; Telugu Women Writers: 1950-1975, a critical study of the social and economic conditions which led to the success of Telugu women writers during the '50s and the '60s.

Malathi has also started a website, in June 2001, which is the only website exclusively devoted to bring Telugu fiction in English to non-Telugu speaking audiences.
