Keep track of literary events taking place across the world in the month of July. The Vodafone Crossword Book Award 2008 shortlist was announced recently and the winners will be announced on July 23. The award ‘recognises and rewards the best of Indian writing and ensures that works of merit reach a wider audience’. We were happy to know about the launch of the Connexions Community. Connexions is a space ‘for collaboratively developing, freely sharing, and rapidly publishing scholarly content on the Web’.
We also came across articles mentioning a book on the nesting behaviour of 51 species of common Indian birds, a national library in all metros and an art exhibition inspired by manga comics. Check out these literary themed trucks created for a campaign to promote the Kansas City USA Johnson County Library and to encourage reading. We also like the idea behind the ‘Ticker Tape’ radio which allows users to decide what content they receive and the duration of content they receive.
At Pratham Books, we LOVE food. So, when Yvette Garfield from Handstand Kids agreed to do a guest post for us, we were happy. But, when we saw that she had sent us the recipe for chocolate noodle clusters from her Chinese cookbook, our stomachs felt very very happy. Did your child try his/her hand at making this sumptious treat?
