From Chennai to Bologna: Congratulations, Tara Books!

Bologna Ragazzi New Horizons Award winner!

The book is Do! with text by Gita Wolf and illustrations in the Warli style of art from Maharashtra, by Ramesh Hengadi and Shantaram Dhadpe. It's published by Tara Books, the marvelously innovative independent publishing house launched fifteen years ago by Gita and colleagues.

Sarah Blake Johnson interviews Gita Wolf on Cynsations and talks to her about writing process, collaboration, innovation, and what's next for this vibrant publishing house.

Excerpts from the jury's comments on Do!

"Bursting with bright clarity...wealth of narrative in the details...an exquisitely crafted, eminently readable book."

Congratulations to Gita, the illustrators, and everyone at Tara Books on this well-deserved recognition.
