On Sunday May 6, Restless Books will be celebrating the launch of Yonder, our new imprint for children and young adults. By bringing the wealth of great stories from around to world to young, English-language readers, Yonder champions empathy and curiosity—and nurtures our next generation of savvy global citizens! Join us and Arshia Sattar, author of Ramayana: an Illustrated Retelling, as we celebrate diverse storytelling traditions and picture book art at the Eric Carle Museum.
Arshia Sattar has a PhD in classical Indian literatures from the University of Chicago. Her translations from Sanskrit, The Ramayana of Valmiki and Tales from the Kathasaritsagara, have been published as Penguin Classics. She has also written books for children, including The Adventures of Hanuman.
The mission of The Eric Carle Museum, a non-profit organization in Amherst, Massachusetts, is to inspire a love of art and reading through picture books. A leading advocate in its field, The Carle collects, preserves, presents, and celebrates picture books and picture book illustrations from around the world.
