Kitab (Pvt) Ltd. publishes quality literature for children, young adults, and adult readers, in both English and Urdu, and has a worldwide distribution network.
Our first catalogue was launched in December 2013. Our authors include Sufi Tabassum, Ghulam Abbas, Mehdi Azar Yezdi and Musharraf Ali Farooqi.
At Kitab, one of our aims is to instill in children the love of reading and introduce to them the plethora of characters in both contemporary and classical Asian literature. To this end, we visit schools and hold interactive storytelling events which engage the children and bring to life the characters in the English and Urdu books we have published. To date, we have conducted more than twenty storytelling sessions in schools in Karachi, Islamabad and Lahore.
Due to popular demand, we now hold storytelling workshops for adults across the country, most recently in Islamabad, Lahore and Karachi, at which those interested in this age-old tradition are taught the basics of storytelling for children.
