Thank You to our 'Reading is Resistance' Campaign Donors!

Dear readers,

Our Indiegogo campaign ended on Monday, and as we look back on the weeks of fundraising that have come to a close, we are greatly heartened by the outpouring of support we received from an international community of readers. Your enthusiasm and generosity throughout the campaign has renewed our determination to publish emerging literary voices from unexpected places.

All of us here at Restless Books would like to thank our donors. Your contributions support distinctive voices of international literature and sustain the resistance that we so passionately champion. With your help, Restless will be better equipped to navigate the next few months as we transition to a 501(c)3 nonprofit.

Your support will also be instrumental as we prepare to launch Yonder, our exciting new imprint of international books for young readers. Yonder's first title, The Wild Book, an adventure story about a boy who goes to live in a magical library, is scheduled for publication this Halloween. It has already sold over a million copies in Spanish, and we’re excited to bring it to young English-readers for the first time. With your backing, we will also be primed to expand our signature series of The Face, Restless Classics, and international science fiction. We’ll continue to publish cutting-edge, international Jewish literature and carry on awarding the Restless Books Prize for New Immigrant Writing.

The next few months will be intense, exhilarating ones thanks to these projects—and these endeavors will be importantly sustained by you, our passionate readers. We hope our books will continue to feed your restless spirit and captivate you as they have us.

Gracias,
The Restless team

P.S. If you're in New York this September, we hope you'll come visit us at the Brooklyn Book Festival (booth 430) so we can thank you in person. Plus, you'll be able to meet our newest Restless author, Fernanda Torres. She'll be at our Breaking Borders benefit on 9/14 and at two different panels on 9/17.
