‘The Coach’ Among IYL’s Top Five

A book written by Iranian writer Farideh Khalatbari titled ‘The Coach’ has been registered as one of the five top books on the list of the International Youth Library (IYL).

The IYL is the largest library in the world for international children and youth literature. Each year the library selects newly published books from across the world that they consider to be especially noteworthy. The list of books is compiled into the annual White Ravens Catalogue, which is introduced each year at the Bologna Children’s Book Fair, Italy.
“Finally five top books are selected. This is the first time that a book from Iran has made its way to the top five works,” IRNA quoted Khalatbari as saying.
The White Raven label is given to books that deserve worldwide attention because of their universal themes and/or their exceptional and often innovative artistic and literary style and design.
The IYL was established in 1949, four years after the Second World War, in Munich, Germany with the efforts of a German humanitarian Jella Lepman.
