FEST "Alpenliebe-Bookaroo Delhi 2018"

As Bookaroo’s 10-year celebrations reach their peak, Alpenliebe-Bookaroo Delhi 2018 promises to be the biggest-ever.

Seventy speakers from thirteen countries are all set to delight children and parents alike in Delhi with some scintillating storytelling, workshops, drama, art & craft and books at the 11th edition of Bookaroo, India’s first children’s literature festival.

Two days of non-stop fun with books will unfold at Alpenliebe-Bookaroo Delhi 2018, a collaboration with Indira Gandhi National Centre for the Arts [IGNCA]. The festival will showcase a record 105 sessions for children between 4 and 14 over the weekend on December 1st and 2nd, 2018.

Alpenliebe’s Rohit Kapoor, Director Marketing, Perfetti Van Melle India Pvt. Ltd., says, “In this fast-paced life, it is becoming increasingly difficult for families to spend quality time together. As a brand, Alpenliebe stands for “Bringing Hearts Closer” and the rich indulgent taste of the Alpenliebe candy does exactly that. We feel that Bookaroo is the perfect association, through which we can urge families to spend more time with each other and indulge in a fun-filled weekend of immersive love for books, stories and art”

Speaking on the collaboration, Achal Pandya, HOD (Cultural Archives), IGNCA, said, "Indira Gandhi National Centre for the Arts is happy to host Bookaroo festival. Bookaroo is one such festival where children and their activities are celebrated at a large scale. Please do come to the IGNCA to be part of this festival on December 1 and 2, 2018 and enjoy books, exhibitions and various other activities. We look forward to welcome you all."

For Bookaroo founders, these upcoming events are the culmination of 10 years of a festival that the children of Delhi have come to love and call their own. “We would like to thank parents, teachers, our authors, illustrators, sponsors and those who have supported us in many, many ways. A special thank you to Alpenliebe and IGNCA,” said Swati Roy, co-founder and festival director, Bookaroo Children’s Literature Festival.

As part of Alpenliebe-Bookaroo Delhi 2018, Bookaroo has also collaborated with the Tata Trusts  and India Habitat Centre [IHC] to exhibit original artwork from children's books by three winners of the Big Little Book Awards -- Atanu Roy Roy, Proiti Roy and Nina Sabnani at the Experimental Art Gallery at IHC, New Delhi. These artworks are on display until 29th November.

On 28th November Proiti will hold a workshop for design school students and on 29th November, there will be a panel discussion on Diversity in Illustrating children's books, from 6.30pm to 8.00pm at the Amphitheatre, IHC, New Delhi.

Highlights of Alpenliebe-Bookaroo Delhi 2018:

Storytelling: continuous storytelling will come alive under the Banyan tree, as performers from all corners of the earth - New Zealand, South Africa, Australia, South Korea, the Czech Republic and seven other countries present stories as never before!

Art and Craft: making toys, creating life out of trash, guessing games, Czech puppets, comic characters, masked animals, playing with words and images to make tales, creating wacky animal walls to creating a monster wall to making an ocean come alive on the wall – all this and more 

Real-life stories: Tansen, the musical genius; the life of Amrita Shergil, Krishnadeva Raya and his empire building; inspiring personalities from sports, art, music, history and science, a powerful story that is set in the backdrop of the Gonds’ struggle for their land,
