Grensgangers selected as White Raven

The International Youth Library in Munich has selected ‘Grensgangers’ (Crossing the Line) as White Raven 2016. Each year the IYL selects books that “inspire and provoke, set new trends, and are of the highest quality in terms of language, content and artistry”. This year 200 books were selected in 42 languages, from 60 countries (of which 2 books from Flanders). The White Ravens will be announced at the Frankfurter Buchmesse and exhibited at the Bologna Book Fair and other places around the world.
