Bookaroo features in LBF International Excellence Awards shortlist
Bookaroo Trust has been shortlisted at The London Book Fair International Excellence Awards 2017 in The Literary Festival Award category, supported by The International Literary Showcase. Bookaroo Trust’s mission is to bring children and books together to celebrate the joy of reading through storytelling, dramatised readings, theatre, poetry, art and craft. “We are elated and honoured to be shortlisted for The Literary Festival Award 2017. Bookaroo Children’s Literature Festival owes its success to each and every person who has helped on our journey over the last nine years through eight cities, 21 editions and two countries, and to all the children who have joined us to celebrate the joy of reading. This recognition will spur us on to continue making books and stories come alive for children of all ages – locally, nationally and internationally,” say Jo Williams, Swati Roy and M. Venkatesh, festival directors.
