Happy Children’s Day! On this lovely day we invited author and poet, Sampurna Chattarji to talk about books for children. Yes, we finally did it. We’re talking about books for children of all ages - from picture books to book for tweens.
All this is thanks to Jumpstart Fest 2018 (organized by German Book Office, New Delhi in partnership with Goethe Institut/ Max Mueller Bhavan) - India’s only annual congress for children’s content creators. Jumpstart was founded with the objective of building a community in the children’s content space and facilitate conversations to help it grow. It’s for people who want to create and people who want to consume. Everyone’s welcome!
In its 10th year, the festival comes to our home ground, Mumbai on the 27th & 28th of November at Goethe Institut, Mumbai. The event will also take place on the 30th of November in New Delhi at Crafts Museum, New Delhi. Join for two days of panels, masterclasses/workshops on writing, young adult and illustrations and of course, networking.
