Tara Books is an independent publishing house started in 1994 by Gita Wolf. Over the years, she was joined by other creative friends who have helped Tara grow organically and in many directions. We are a collective of writers, designers and book artisans who favour a non-hierarchical mode of functioning, informed by feminism and other movements for social justice. Our team at the office is currently 18 people.Since 2012, our home has been the Book Building in Chennai, South India. Apart from our office, it houses a bookstore, a gallery, and a residential space for visiting artists, authors and designers.
