Press Release
June 25, 2011

Congratulations to all the participants of the Greek Day on Broadway in Vancouver this weekend.

An incredible amount of work has gone into this effort, and we wish all the success to it’s organizers.

We also want to thank the Vancouver Public Library, Kitsilano Branch, for inviting Author Manolis to present a portion of his work that brings forth his contributions to Greek Canadian literature, as a part of the Greek Day celebrations.

In this way, through our publications, we were able to bring attention to some of the most prolific Greek literary icons: Yannis Ritsos, Cavafy, and (upcoming) Seferis. As well, Manolis is an acclaimed author of seventeen titles. Through the quality of his original work and through his poetic translations/transliterations, he evolves Greek Canadian literature right here in BC.

As an independent Canadian publisher, we will continue to provide quality support to all community efforts through our literary publications and initiatives.
