Sept 20 5PM: My guest will be Jim Kates, publisher of Zephyr Press of Brookline, Mass.
Zephyr Press, a non-profit arts and education 501(c)(3) organization, publishes literary titles that foster deeper understanding of cultures and languages.
Since its first forays into American poetry and prose in 1980, Zephyr has expanded its list to include a series of Russian and Slavic literature, and most recently an East Asian line of books. Zephyr has also initiated a collaborative venture with the series Adventures in Poetry—a small press with a thirty-year history.
To further our commitment to cross-cultural exchange, we organize bilingual readings, translation workshops in schools, and other educational and cultural events.
