About the Event

Parinita Shetty is a writer and enthusiast of children’s books. She has worked with books and young people in India in different ways – as an author, a bookseller, a reading programme developer, and a children’s literature festival coordinator. She has an M.Ed in Children’s Literature and Literacies from the University of Glasgow. She is currently a doctoral researcher at the University of Leeds studying intersectionality and critical literacy in fandom, specifically in Harry Potter and Doctor Who fan podcasts. She should be writing but she’s probably looking for cake.

Rita Faire is a PhD candidate and Associate Lecturer in Publishing at the Scottish Centre of the Book in Edinburgh Napier University. Her current research examines the implications of conglomeration and co-editions on the periphery picturebook publishing environments of Europe – specifically Scotland, Ireland, and Sweden. Rita is also a writer, editor, and graphic designer who has worked with several award-winning publishers including dyslexia-friendly children’s publisher Barrington Stoke.

Both are advisory board members of REIYL (Researchers Exploring Inclusive Youth Literature).
