Another thing that called attention to the multiplicity of subjects that are under consideration. Natalya explained the significance of this in the lives of young people.
“It’s a very strong you grow and Mature, do not see, presented in the literature, in cinema and in art in General, it is important to fight to avoid such a crossing out. If the world is diverse, literature must also be, with characters from different social backgrounds, skin color, personality, gender, sexual orientation and so forth.”
The publisher noted that this movement is not recent, but has gained notoriety in the media and other spheres of society.
“Historically, poetry young people have always been brave for the treatment of topics considered to be taboo, like sexuality, racism, mental health, among many others.

Diversity is a constant concern. For example, we published “Aristotle and Dante discover the secrets of the Universe’, Benjamin Alire Saenz, which became a reference between the literature of a young LGBTQIA+, already more than six years.

The book ‘Brave: Stories of people, refugees in Brazil”, Aryane Cararo and Duda Portode Sousa, who we are going to release in the near future, fits into this line. But it is also important that we can find refuge in the books that will bring us comfort, and company to get through this difficult time.
