Europa Editions Is Coming to Town
Michael Reynolds, Editor in Chief of renowned independent publisher, Europa Editions, will be speaking at Books & Books on Sunday, July 15, 4pm.

Founded by two trailblazing Italian publishers, Sandro Ferri and Alessandra Ozzola, Europa is known for its distinctive and irresistible design and for its pioneering work publishing writers from around the world. Publishers of bestsellers like The Elegance of the Hedgehog by Muriel Barbery, the Neapolitan Novels by Elena Ferrante (soon to be an HBO series), and Jane Gardam’s Old Filth trilogy, Europa’s track record of success and its reputation for quality have combined to make the company one of the leaders in the indie press renaissance.
