Welcome to a new episode of the Make Books Travel podcast!
Today I’m excited to speak with Prashant Pathak, who joins us from just outside of New Delhi in India.
Prashant gives us insights into the current situation of the Indian publishing market and explains how the publishing house he started 4 years ago, Wonder House Books, has weathered the challenges brought on by the pandemic.
He also discusses how the Facebook Group Publishers Without Borders got started, right at the beginning of the lockdowns related to the pandemic, where the group is at now, and what their plans are for when we can all meet each other again at book fairs (hint: it involves some cold beverages!).
Prashant's book recommendations:
- Captain Underpants. The Big Bad Battle of Bionic Booger Boy by Jeff Kinney
- The Book with No Pictures by BJ Novak
- Richard Scarry's Best Treasury Ever
- Sherlock Holmes by Arthur Conan Doyle, audiobook narrated by Stephen Fry
Prashant started as an online gaming support executive and transitioned his career into publishing by working with various publishing services companies.
In 2017, he joined Prakash Books to set up a new imprint for children, Wonder House Books, where as a publisher he creates engaging content and attractive designs.
His strong-suits have given the organization grounds to bloom significantly.
He lives in New Delhi and is a father of 2 boys — a 6 year old Human Male and an 8 year old yellow Labrador.
