Vainola presents two of her books published in the German language so far: Lift (illustrated by Ulla Saar, Willegoos 2015) and Where is Love? (illustrated by Kertu Sillaste, BaltArt 2015) and talks about her work as a children’s writer.

The White Ravens Festival is dedicated to international children’s and youth literature. It is organised by the International Youth Library in Munich. Over the course of six days, authors and illustrators from Germany and abroad will read from their most recent works, lead writing workshops and other interactive events, and discuss their life and works. The Festival’s focus is as much on renowned and acclaimed authors as it is on new literary discoveries, and its German and international programme aims to build bridges between cultures.

The Festival is named for the “White Ravens” of the International Youth Library, which in specialists’ circles stand for extraordinary and innovative books for children and adolescents. The Library publishes an annual international book review catalogue titled “White Ravens”. The “White Ravens” selected for inclusion in the catalogue all inspire and provoke, set new trends, and are of the highest quality in terms of language, content and artistry.
