Mission

The EDLD seeks to amplify voices, highlighting the experiences of writers, readers, mediators of different backgrounds who share a passion for words and a sense of urgency for rethinking the relationship with the other. Its mandate as a space for reflection and for the sharing of ideas is to redefine the meaning of the word Togetherness by combating racism and exclusion through books. To break down boundaries dividing cultures, communities, languages and literatures in order to participate in the emergence of diversity as a fundamental value and meaning of being human.
