After our mega in-person event, Varta, we decided to take a small break and are now back. It’s so exciting to start the next phase of our nonprofit life by informing you that Peerbagh is now an independent 501(c)(3). This means, all your support and donations are tax exempt, and on our part we’re even more committed to building future storytellers and diversifying our bookshelves. This summer many storytellers and young minds spun beautiful tales to win prizes in our short story contests.
