A Glimpse into Indonesian History through Story with Dalang Publishing.

Florey's Books welcomes Dalang Publishing to present: A Glimpse into Indonesian History through Story.

About Dalang Publishing:
Dalang Publishing is a San Mateo–based publisher that provides English-language translations of Indonesian historical and cultural novels. Founded by Lian Gouw in the fall of 2011, Dalang, the Indonesian word for “master storyteller,” now lists nine titles that take the reader back to the early years of Dutch and British colonialization, from the 1600s through WWII and the revolution in the mid-1900s, to more current events that have significant, historical consequences.
Lian joins us to discuss Dalang’s titles and general information about Indonesia.

Presentations at 11 a.m. and 3 p.m. provide an overview of Dalang’s books and its most recent 2017 publication, Dasamuka, by Junaedi Setiyono.

To history buffs and travel fans alike: Don’t miss this rare opportunity to get an intimate peek at the colorful history and rich culture of Indonesia, the world’s largest archipelago: 17,000 islands wrapped around the equator!

Light Indonesian refreshments served at 11 a.m. and 3 p.m.

We hope to see you!
