Peek A Book Literature and Story-telling Festival for Children
Stories and story-tellers, books and authors, food and fun times for children and families. Peek A Book is a one-of-a-kind literature festival with carnival-like atmosphere that recreates the magic of words, language and stories; of books and authors, particularly Indian.
Children can choose from over 25 different sessions over the day built around the most unique books (fiction and non-fiction) of 2018 and stories.
Adults must accompany children – Peek A Book takes no responsibility for children unaccompanied by adults.
Sessions for children between the ages 3-15 years AND for parents too!
Food and drinks will be available for sale at the venue – and are not inclusive in the ticket cost.
