Our indefatigable founding member Bryan Patrick Miller, editor of Boris Dralyuk’s translation of How Much Land Does a Man Need, has been hitting the New York streets in preparation for a very special event on Feb. 10: The launch of both Calypso as a new literary press and the publication of our first book.

Please join us for this exciting evening at the Pacific Standard Bar in Brooklyn, NY. Our launch is part of the Chin Music Reading Series Tolstoy Centennial celebration.

Here are the details:

When: Feb. 10, 7 p.m.
Where: Pacific Standard Bar, Brooklyn, N.Y.

The Chin Music Reading Series, named the “Best New Literary Event of 2008” by New York Magazine, celebrates the Tolstoy Centennial on Feb. 10 with three of Russia’s brightest literary stars: poets Polina Barskova and Ilya Kaminsky, and Boris Dralyuk. At the event, co-sponsored by Melville House, Dralyuk will honor the timeless master with readings in Russian from Tolstoy’s How Much Land Does a Man Need, a work James Joyce called “the greatest story the literature of the world knows.” Dralyuk is the translator of a new edition of this timeless classic, the inaugural book of Calypso Editions.

The event will be photographed by Anthony Blasko, and photos will be available at http://calypsoeditions.org/about/press/ following the reading.
