Dalang Publishing was invited to participate in “An Evening in Indonesia,” a cultural event that the Indonesian Consulate in San Francisco hosted on October 12, 2018. To us, aside from an opportunity to draw attention to our press, it was a wonderful opportunity to commemorate the Soempah Pemoeda, the pledge that young Indonesian nationalists in the Second Youth Congress made on October 28, 1928, to uphold Bahasa Indonesia, the language that unites us.
Dalang’s titles, as well as our canvas illustrating that historic moment, drew much attention.
Meanwhile, we are moving full force toward the press date of Blood Moon over Aceh, the English language translation by Maya Denisa Saputra of Lolong Anjing di Bulan by Arafat Nur (Penerbit Universitas Sanata Dharma 2018). An excerpt of the work is featured as this month’s short story on the “Your Stories,” “Current” page of our website, dalangpublishing.com.
Dalang will participate in the launch of Lolong Anjing di Bulan on November 9, 2018 at the Universitas Sanata Dharma in Yogyakarta. Java.
On November 13, 2018, we will present the title at Universitas Syiah Kuala in Banda Aceh, Sumatra.
