Pratham Books and JLF Outreach : Taking Litmagic to Schools


For the fourth year in a row, we are delighted to partner with the Zee Jaipur Literature Festival and Teamwork Arts to manage to outreach component of the festival. 

The JLF Outreach creates a new generation of lovers – lovers of literature!

Young children in school learn to interact with books in many ways. As they learn language, they also get their first taste of literature in their text books, library books and books that their friends are reading. What can be more exciting for them than to meet the authors and illustrators who create these wonderful magical things called books!

The JLF Outreach takes the excitement of the world's finest literature festival right into their classrooms. Author interactions, readings, exciting discussions, and tips on writing...a truly rewarding experience for children and authors as they come face to face with a new set of readers.

This year local Jaipur students will get to meet and learn from Pulitzer-Prize winners, international illustrators and some of the world-class poets, novelists and journalists who will attend the world’s largest free literary festival next week.

The Festival has partnered with Pratham Books to produce over 50 interactive sessions from Jan 16-25, 2015 promoting the love of books to schools across Jaipur including Bhawani CDC, Bhawan’s Vidyashram, MGD Girls’ School, Neerja Modi School, The Palace School, SKIT College, Kanoria Girls College, Bright Future English School and several others.

We will also be participating in the main Zee Jaipur Literature Festival. More details to follow soon.
