Every author is aware about the challenges they come across. The challenges do not over even after the book is published. The primary test an author appears in his journey is when he has already published his dream book. But, it is sad to say that the book doesn’t reach its right place even when it is beautifully penned.
Kashah Entertainment took the step and came up with the initiative of conducting an Author Summit to encourage interaction between authors from different corners of the nation and tell about their book and the journey they have been through. The founder and director, Karan Kapoor, gave this opportunity to different authors and interacted with them. The Virtual Author Summit was conducted on 26th and 27th February in both Hindi and English language respectively. Many eminent personalities were invited as expert panelists, and authors got the opportunity to be the speaker of the event.
The Hindi Author Summit was conducted on 26th February, 2022, and it was excellently hosted by Prerna Mehrotra (Writer and Business Coach). The Summit began with a welcome note and a ride through the Kashah Virtual Tour by the Founder and Director.
