Neev raises curtain on the 2nd edition of the
Neev Literature Festival in Bangalore
After an overwhelming response last year, Neev is back with its 2nd edition of the ‘Neev Literature Festival’ for Children this September.
Developing a Reading habit for children has never been more important to education than today where the only skill needed is the ability to learn and relearn and adapt to changing circumstances and careers.With a mission to creating readers for life, the 3 day event will be held in Bengaluru on the 27th, 28th and 29th September 2018.
NLF will host more than 65 celebrated International and Indian authors, film makers, illustrators and librarians. Renowned authors such asNadia Hashimi, Paro Anand, Ranjit Lal, Shals Mahajan, SampurnaChattarji, JahnaviBarua, Neha Singh, Adan Jimenez & Felicia Low Jimenez, among others will be part of the festival to meet and interact with the children.
The Neev Literature festival will house workshops and panel discussions for students, educators, librarians and parents, and a curated book exhibit of must-read titles.
This year the festival will be unveiling the Neev Book Awards, for distinguished children’s literature to recognize outstanding writing that leads to a fuller understanding of India, Indian lives, and Indian stories.
W.B.Yeats said, Education is the lighting of a fire, not the filling of a bucket. Neev Academy brings the Neev literature festival to Bangalore, to create conversations between writers, readers ad influencers, expose people to new stories and to light the fire of reading.
