Talk “Children’s Book Publishing in Indonesia: Development and Market Opportunities” cum Book Launch by Dr. Murti Bunanta
At this book launch, Dr. Bunanta will firstly share with us the development of Indonesian children’s books publishing in the last ten years – the market opportunities, challenges faced by children’s book writers, illustrators, and publishers, and the education policy, and promotion of reading in Indonesia.
Thereafter, join Dr. Bunanta as she launches her 49th and 50th children’s books titled Si Kelingking (a folktale from Jambi province) and Tattadu (a folktale from South Sulawesi province). These books are written with an interest to introduce children to multicultural issues through folktales in an amusing way.
At the same time, Dr. Bunanta will also introduce a series of six books written by Djoko Hartanto. Beautifully illustrated by Daud Budi Surya, the Lovely Buddies Series tells about the friendship between Lala and animals from the beautiful tropical forests of Indonesia. The series is available in two versions; Indonesian and English.
