The newly elected council for Lahore School Society of Literature hosted its orientation on 6 October 2016. The event began with outlining key motives of the society and its plan of action for the coming year. Students were urged to take a step back from their technology infused routines and open up to a warm world of literature. Stereotypes associated with readers were challenged as our welcome extended to avid readers, non-readers and simply curious people alike. “LSSL is about finding and nurturing yourself, no matter where you come from, “marked the end of Marib Maqsood (President LSSL) in his speech. Former President Ayesha Nazar said, “I am departing the society with a treasure of knowledge that I shall cherish for all times to come.”
