The BLF - Pratham Books Outreach Programme takes the excitement of books and literature to children in schools! Authors and illustrators get to meet young readers across Bangalore in schools so that children catch the reading bug early. This is the second year of the Outreach programme. Between September 17-27, 2014, there will be book readings, and interactive sessions with authors and illustrators at chosen schools.
Authors include Paro Anand (Bhabhloo the Bear, Lion on the Loose, No Guns at My Son’s Funeral ), Vijaylakshmi Nagaraj (Rhino Charge, Natural Wonders of the World), Mala Kumar (Rupaiya Paisa series, Rituchakra series) and illustrators include Soumya Menon (My Fish! No, My Fish! ) and Sangeetha Kadur (Wildlife in a City Pond). The sessions will be conducted in English, Kannada and Hindi. Participating schools include Deccan International, Jeeyar Memorial School, Bangalore International School, and Chaitanya Vidyalaya.
