Launch of new imprint
A new imprint, Under the Peepal Tree, has been launched to promote translations of books in Indian and foreign languages into English, primarily for the Indian reader. The first title published under this imprint will be “Mirage and other stories” by Damodar Mauzo and translated from the Konkani by Vidya Pai. The book is scheduled for release during the forthcoming Goa Arts and Literary Festival (GALF), on 5th December 2014. More details about this imprint can be viewed on its website.

Pop-Up bookstall at GALF
CinnamonTeal Publishing will be putting up a pop-up bookstall during the forthcoming Goa Arts and Literary Festival (GALF), scheduled for 4-7 December. It is hoped that initiatives such as these will improve the visibility of its publications and expose the authors to a larger audience. Books related to Goa, or authored by Goans, will be displayed at the stall.
