On the 16th of April, at 6.30pm, join authors Subuhi Jiwani & Priti David in conversation with Kirtana Kumar about the theme of migration in their books for the PARI Series by Karadi Tales. Get the books — Coming Home and No Ticket, Will Travel — from Champaca, and join us for the event on Youtube Live.
The PARI series, published under the Karadi Tales chapter book imprint, Minmini Reads, is done in collaboration with People’s Archive of Rural India. These chapter books use real stories of rural India, disenfranchised people and communities, and the unique challenges they overcome every day, be it in infrastructure, health care, or job security. They are stories of triumph – of children who participate cheerfully in civic issues, athletes who power past their disabilities, citizens who demand their right to be heard – and an attempt to give these voices a platform, as well as address the serious dearth of children’s books that are set in non-urban locations.
