What Children Could be Reading

Aashti Mudnani, Aparna Kapur, Bijal Vachcharajani and Maithili Doshi (12y+)


Most of Aparna’s friends are imaginary, and she is happiest when she’s making things up. Aparna Kapur has been involved in the creation of children’s content in India for the last decade. She has been on the editorial teams of a children’s science magazine, a comic book publisher, and a publisher of picture books. She has also curated reading lists, conducted writing workshops, and participated in and moderated panel discussions about children’s literature.

She has authored picture books and graphic novels, and co-authored a middle grade novel. She has written about children’s literature for various publications, including McSweeney’s and The
Hindu, and has written and presented papers at conferences across the world. When she isn’t writing or editing children’s books, she can be found poring over a book or pouring herself a large cup of coffee. She has recently completed a master’s degree in Wild Writing from the University of Essex.
