Laberinto Press was founded by Luciana Erregue-Sacchi, and publishes Canadian underrepresented, ESL writing, and World literature in translation.
Their first book, the anthology Beyond the Food Court: an Anthology of Literary Cuisines showcases 14 recognized authors from all over the world who call Canada home. The idea of Beyond the Food Court was born not only as a look beyond the standard kitschy food offerings of the North American food court, but also with the aim to deepen the idea of diversity, both culinary and literary. Food is a universal language, and the authors behind this anthology have studied their own hungers, to paraphrase American food writer M.F.K. Fisher.
Beyond the Gallery is the second instalment in the Beyond series. This multilingual and multi-genre anthology showcases emerging and established talents within the Hispanic Canadian community, featuring a broad range of writings on visual culture by Spanish-speaking writers, artists, and cultural workers.
There is a discussion panel event for Beyond the Gallery at the 2021 Edmonton Litfest on Friday, October 15. Click here for more information.
