Ediciones Ekaré publishes books for children and young people. The name Ekaré was borrowed from the Pemón language, an ethnic group located in southeastern Venezuela. The word means “news” or “true narration”, and in a broader context, story or legend.
Ediciones Ekaré was created in 1978 and its main goal, to publish quality children’s books, is directly related with the Banco del Libro’s experience in public libraries and school libraries; Banco del Libro is an internationally known Venezuelan institution for its reading promotion programs.
Today our books reach many countries, but the early intention remains the same: to offer children and young people quality books about our own culture and that of other parts of the world.
