Not surprisingly, the Man Booker Prize organization is keenly following the books coming out of Oak Tree Fine Press. Oak Tree Fine Press’s First Chapter Series is a new collaboration between Man Booker Prize-winning authors and numerous artists to raise money for children made vulnerable by HIV and AIDS. Oak Tree Fine Press collaborate with Nobel and Booker prize-winning authors, and noted artists in a unique publishing program. Artists who have worked with Oak Tree include Yoko Ono, FPBA member Abigail Rorer, Stephen Alcorn and many other luminaries.
The amazing story of Oak Tree Fine Press will be featured in the fall 2009 issue of Parenthesis. Definitely something to look forward to.
