The Oxford Dictionary of Plays by Michael Patterson

Read a summary (under details) and check availability in KIS library catalog.

Your competent child by Jesper Juul

One of the best books of parenting (in my personal opinion), but quite challenging. I dare every parent to read it!
Is it available?
Usha K R recently visited KIS for the annual writers workshop. The library then acquired 2 of her novels, The Chosen and A Girl and a River. We got to tape Usha talking briefly about her authorship. Watch it below.
