We’re just days away from Bookaroo’s 2nd edition in Pune! India’s biggest children’s literature festival returns to this historical city on Jan 31 and Feb 1, 2015. The Pune leg of this popular event has been organized in association with Sakal Media Group and will be held at Pandit Farms. The event will be graced by authors, illustrators, poets, and storytellers from all around the world.
And guess what? I’m going to be there. So join me for a tea party with the Mad Hatter. And once we’re done, let me whisk you away on a quest to a far away land.
I’m also a part of the outreach programme, Bookaroo in the City, where I shall conduct a session in one of Pune’s schools on Jan 30, 2015.
Here are the details of my sessions at Bookaroo Pune 2015.
The Mad Hatter’s Tea Party
Jan 31, 2015 (Saturday) from 11.00 to 12.00 at The Studio
8 – 10 years
The Mad Hatter! The March Hare! The Dormouse! And Alice, of course! All wonderfully quirky characters. But what makes them so? Join Prashant to learn about how to craft memorable characters.
Let’s Go on a Quest
Jan 31, 2015 (Saturday) from 14.00 to 15.00 at The Studio
10 – 12 years
It’s what all heroes and heroines are queuing up for. To embark upon a journey to far off lands. To retrieve the magical golden spear. Or perhaps rescue the beautiful princess. And to return triumphant.
About Prashant Pinge
Prashant Pinge utterly disregards reality and prefers residing in 16th century England next to the Bard’s house, where he spends his days in the company of his characters and nights taming wild dragons.
Bookaroo Pune will be held at Pandit Farms, Raja Mantri Road, Navasahyadri Society, Ganesh Nagar, Karvenagar.
