About The Teacher

Special SKYPE Guest

Tamar Mays joined HarperCollins in 2005 to run Harper’s renowned I Can Read program. Previously she was a bookseller, a children’s book buyer, an editor at Dutton working with the A.A. Milne estate, and the manager of Scholastic’s Lucky School Book Club, for 2nd and 3rd graders.

Tamar’s editorial focus is early childhood, from birth to third grade. She still runs the ICR program, working with Jane O’Connor, Victoria Kann, Rob Scotton, Ree Drummond, and the estates of Syd Hoff, Russ Hoban, and Arnold Lobel. Tamar also edits the Let’s-Read-and-Find-Out science series and has worked with Melissa Stewart, Kathy Zoehfeld, Seymour Simon and Dr. Steve Brusatte. Tamar has a strong affinity for illustrated work and loves acquiring picture books with humor and warmth. She would love to have more author-illustrator submissions as well as more work from diverse voices.

Why Retreat?

We asked people why they go on retreat, here's what they said:

Because I sometimes work up to 16 hours a day, and need time to stop and breathe. Mary

Retreat Guru's Vision

We believe human beings are innately wise, strong and kind. This wisdom, although not always experienced, is always present. Going on retreat is a beautiful way to reconnect to our basic sanity and health. Our aspiration at Retreat Guru is to inspire people to experience authentic retreats and reconnect with their innate wisdom, strength and kindness.
