Deepa Panchal and Shreedevi conducted a storytelling session along with the Pratham Books (Mumbai) team on 7th September, 2013. We would like to thank the Oxford Bookstore for being our venue partner and supporting us in this initiative. Deepa and Shreedevi conducted the storytelling session on behalf of their company, "Talking Turtles Storytellers" and they tell stories to children of all ages. They also do storytelling for street children on a regular basis.
Thank you Deepa Panchal, Shreedevi, Talking Turtles and Oxford for spreading the joy of reading!
