Nach einem Jahr Haft wurde Deniz Yücel am 16. Februar endlich aus dem Gefängnis entlassen!

City of Fremantle T.A.G. Hungerford Award

We are pleased to announce that submissions for the 2018 City of Fremantle T.A.G. Hungerford Award are open. Entries close on Friday 16 March 2018.

Since 2012, more than 25,000 refugees from Africa and the Middle East have arrived in the Italian island of Lampedusa seeking asylum. Mariella Bertelli has visited the island now 5 times, helping IBBY, the International Board of Books for Young People, and IBBY Italia, create a library for local and immigrant children. Mariella was in Lampedusa this winter, working with local high school students to translate Stormy Seas into Italian. She believes that Lampedusa, in the middle of the Mediterranean Sea, is a very symbolic place in the world. Having the young people of Lampedusa translating Stormy Seas brings added value to the translation, because of their unique perspective and experience. The students and Mariella shared updates throughout the project in English and Italian.
