Welcome to Saffron Stories

Saffron Stories has been setup by Chitra Soundar, Indian-born British author of over 20 books for children.

 

Saffron Stories would curate a list of children's books

 

 

  • written by writers of South Asian descent in the UK / US
  • Or set in South Asia
  • Or has characters of South Asian origin

 

South Asia includes the following countries

  • Afghanistan
  • Bangladesh
  • Bhutan
  • India
  • Maldives
  • Nepal
  • Pakistan
  • & Sri Lanka

 

From time to time, we would blog about new books being released, books published in South Asia that should not be missed and/or topics that are relevant.

 

This list is aimed at librarians, booksellers and teachers who are interested in bringing diverse reading to their classrooms / customers / readers. 

 

We invite visitors to suggest books that we might have missed as long as it meets the criteria.

 

We would collect suggestions for other diverse reads periodically so if you have a book that you want to suggest, stay tuned for the various blog posts.

 

Keep reading!
