About This Event
Since its publication in 1894, Rudyard Kipling’s The Jungle Book has remained loved by children, but its attitudes have been questioned by some parents and critics, who see it as a relic of colonial English literature. Koechlin’s Les Bandar-Log is part of his nearly life long effort to set The Jungle Book to music. Costa Book Prize winning novelist Frances Hardinge and Sue Walsh from Reading University explore the book’s popularity and controversies with New Generation Thinker Anindya Raychaudhuri.
