A generous invitation from the Indonesian Consulate in San Francisco enabled Dalang Publishing to participate in the 2nd Annual Indonesian Bazaar held by Friends of Indonesia on May 20, 2023, in the La Cocina Municipal Marketplace, San Francisco. The event showcased Indonesian handcrafts, dance, and food.
We proudly presented our 12 titles, including our 10th anniversary publication, Footprints / Tapak Tilas, a bilingual short-story compilation that takes readers on a historical and cultural journey across Indonesia. Footprints / Tapak Tilas offers 49 short stories, comprising the work of 44 authors and 18 translators all previously published on Dalang’s website.
We were honored by a visit from Bapak Prasetyo Hadi, the Consul General of Indonesia for San Francisco, and his wife, Ibu Ota, as well as Bapak Mahmudin Nur Al-Gozaly, Consul for Information, Art and Culture. Our booth attracted many visitors, and we received several book orders.
