Celebrating Women in Literature: LiBeraturpreis 2017 Awards Ceremony
We’re excited to share an update on our partnership with Yogi Tea Europe and LiBeraturpreis 2017, an annual award that supports women in literature. Hosted by Litprom; a nonprofit with the goal of promoting dialog between cultures through literature, LiBeraturpreis 2017 highlights work from women in literature who might otherwise not be recognized or represented.
Earlier this year, the public was invited to cast their vote for one of the ten finalists, and we are honored to announce that Faribā Vafī, author of Tarlan, is the winner of LiBeraturpreis 2017!
As the winner of LiBeraturpreis 2017, Vafī received a monetary prize as well as financing for a project that supports young women in literature. By sponsoring the LiBeraturpreis 2017 with Yogi Tea Europe and providing financing for such a project, it is our goal to assist Litprom in their efforts to support young writers and encourage thoughtful dialogue across cultures.
