Europa Editions Tenth Anniversary Party & Book Launch!
Join Europa Editions publishers and staff, authors and translators, to celebrate Europa's tenth birthday and the launch of Jennifer Tseng's debut novel Mayumi and the Sea of Happiness. Founded in 2005, Europa Editions brings fresh international voices to American audiences, with beautiful paperback editions that have a distinct look and consistently high levels of editorial standards. The Europa catalog is eclectic, reflecting the founders’ belief that dialogue between nations and cultures is of vital importance and that this exchange is facilitated by literature chosen not only for its ability to entertain and fascinate but also to inform and enlighten. Europa celebrates with champagne, birthday cake, giveaways and a prize drawing: with every purchase of a Europa title customers will receive Europa swag and be entered to win 10 Europa novels: one from each year of the publisher’s life. The event will also celebrate the publication date of Mayumi and the Sea of Happiness, the story of a dutiful married librarian whose life is expanded and upended by an obsessive affair with a young library patron.
