Selected stories and memoirs from Goa Masala were read by Dan Driscoll. Efforts are underway to publicize names and Goa-Origin indications for the thirty-three writers contributing to Goa Masala, so that anyone having special interest (by reason of family or neighbourly relationship) concerning any of the contributors may request reading or comment about that specific item. Mr. Driscoll entertained reading requests submitted by note at the beginning of the reading session.
