Book Love Carnival

Book Love Carnival’s love for diversity brings together authors, illustrators, and artists who are exploring culture, inclusion, and social and ethical concerns through their writing and art.
Currently, there is an increasing desire to explore socially inclusive and responsible ways of living and working, and “This is book love at Book Love Carnival’s” work makes authors’ diverse books accessible to audiences to enjoy and experience.

As part of the event, Desiree Bashi, author, illustrator, and dancer known for her diverse art, performed a classical Odissi dance piece depicting spring “Vasant Pallavi”, engaging the audience in the dance and storytelling through hand gestures – mudras. Desiree Bashi also presented her book Dancing With Your Eyes, a book on classical Indian dance eye movement, expression, emotions, and the beauty of discovering the world around us.

Author Kandace Chimbiri presented her book The Story of the Windrush, a book to celebrate the inspiring legacy of the Windrush pioneers. In June 1948, hundreds of Caribbean men, women, and children arrived in London on a ship called the HMT Empire Windrush.

Author, writer, and poet Lucy Zion Thatcher presented Small thoughts and Poetry, a collection of raw thoughts the author has compiled over the years whilst using writing as a way to restore emotional balance and well-being. It is filled with complex emotions made simple when explored on paper. The awe-inspiring honesty reflects the author’s attempts to understand her own emotions and make peace with them.
