Will be at the Junior Writer’s Bug Literary Festival to be held next weekend April 21st and 22nd in Mumbai. SO glad to see someone putting together a children’s lit festival here.
I am conducting three sessions on Sunday, April 22nd 2012.
10am -11am: A first reading from my book Kaka and Munni (published by Pratham Books) followed by children making a collage. Ages 4-7 years
11:15am – 12:15pm: Time to create your own Rhyme and Rhythm. A workshop for children on writing poetry. Ages 7-10 years
12:30 – 1:30pm: Dramatised reading of Icky, Yucky, Mucky (published by Young Zubaan) accompanied by many a slurp and burp. Reading to be followed by children making their own monsters. Ages 4-7 years.
Venue: St. Anthony’s Girls High School, Chembur.
There is a lot more scheduled in the festival, from illustrations, story writing, script writing, puppetry and more.
