Your Guide to Literary Events Happening Across India

Storytelling by Bharati Jagannathan

Just in case many of you were wondering why we haven’t been posting information about events on our blog, you’ve been looking in wrong place. We have been posting information about all the awesome events we’ve been hearing about – but we created a whole NEW SECTION for them. All the events are now listed under the EVENTS CALENDAR. The calendar also contains links to contests. If you are a writer or illustrator, the calendar is a place to check out.
Where is this events calendar? When you visit the blog, look at the heading just below our blog header. The one on the right says Events Calendar. Click on that and voila – you have many events to mark your calendar with.
And if you can’t find it, bookmark this link and visit it from time to time to know what is happening in your city : http://blog.prathambooks.org/p/events-contests-and-more.html
The calendar is updated whenever we hear of a new or interesting event (an event for children or an event for kiddos). Since it is not possible that we hear of all the fun events happening across India – we need your help in informing us about these events. If you ever hear of an event that you think may be of interest (or are the organizer of the event), send us a tweet or leave a message on Facebook or send us an email (web(at)prathambooks(dot)org).
Here’s an example of some of the things on our calendar :
