An evening of stories for children

MADURAI

Surya Preethy, who runs the Turning Point book store in the city, is back to host ‘Oru Oorula — My India My Pride 2.0’. It will be spread over three weekends — on August 7-8/ 14-15 and 21-22.

Two dozen known story tellers from across the country, including Geetha Ramanujam, Jeeva Raghunathan, Vikram Sridhar, Arthi Anand, Sarita Nair, Prakrati Agrawal, Kshamatha Chepuri, will fill the evenings with interesting stories about our freedom struggle, freedom fighters, history, heritage, culture, environment and back them with action, drama, music, and dance.

There will be registration fees under different categories. Those who register will receive the zoom link to join the sessions from 6 pm. Ms. Preethy, who had organised online story telling sessions last year with four storytellers, believes storytelling sessions create lifelong readers as it evokes curiosity and interest to read more.
