Launch of Scholastic Nova!
Our new YA category has finally been unveiled. Scholastic Nova was launched at the New Delhi World Book Fair on February 6, with our hot-off-the-oven YA titles—short story collections Saleem on Earth and other Stories, Music of the Stars and Other Love Stories, and Rahul Srivastava’s murder mystery What Happened to Regina That Night.
Popular author Anuja Chauhan read from Nandini Bajpai’s forthcoming novel Red Turban White Horse, and moderated a stimulating discussion on Young Adult literature. The panel included some of the most well-known writers of YA fiction in India today—Payal Dhar, Paro Anand, Rahul Srivastava, and Sampurna Chattarji, whose YA offering Ela will hit the stands in a few months.
Here’s to new beginnings and more outstanding books!
