Children’s Library unconference 2018
February 18, 2018

Written by Joanne Saldanha The excitement started in late December, when an email from Sujata bore news of the Children’s Library unConference 2018.

My journey at Bookworm
February 16, 2018

I first came to know about Bookworm through Deepa – she said “Take Eli to Bookworm Library they run a really nice session for children on Saturday morning”. We had just moved to Goa and I was eager to get Eli to interact with other children. Eli did enjoy his PSM session but I think […]

December 31, 2017

We have much happiness to report. A growing tribe of readers with an additional LiS school this year. A new house in Chimbel for […]

Dialogues at Bookworm: Why do we dialogue?
December 13, 2017

Written by by Radha Gopalan The Beginning We live in extraordinary times: there is the crisis around justice , violence of human against human and human against all life systems, preoccupation with our own wants, desires, aspirations. Then there are people and communities that are trying hard to live cohesively with respect and dignity with […]

The name of my book is ‘Cry, Heart, But Never Break’, written by Glenn Ringtved and illustrated by Charlotte Pardi. This story is about death. This is a sensitive story about learning to say good-bye to those we love, which shows us that death is a natural part of life, both necessary and inevitable. I […]
