We're having our first big literary meet, Sabha 2011 in Bangalore on March 5, and in New Delhi on March 14, 2011. We've invited our authors, illustrators and translators and we do hope we haven't missed out anyone! (Addresses change, phone numbers ditto, and computers crash! So if you are one of our authors, illustrators or translators, and you haven't got an invitation, we apologise. Please send us an email to receive your invite. )
We also want to invite a few friends from our online community! If you would like to participate, do send us a small note about yourself, and why you want to attend this meet, and do mention which one you want to attend.
The meet will explore the challenges facing the children's publishing world, especially while reaching out to the under-served child. How can we help children become life-long readers? How can we get more books into every child's hands? How can we publish well-illustrated books in many Indian languages so that every child gets to read a story in her own language? Pratham Books believes that in a country with so many children in need of reading material, we need quick, clean, legal, and harmonious ways of developing content.
We have a few spots at both venues. Write to me now, at firstname.lastname@example.org
