Dario De Pasquale was born in Messina, Sicily to a Russian mother and Italian father. Learning Russian really early in his life contributed to his inclination for languages. His hands-on experience began in high school, translating Latin and Greek. Dario is the founder of Boys and Girls Tribe, an after-school program designed to foster emotional intelligence in boys and girls aged 5-10.
Along with Deborah Woodard and Roberta Antognini, Dario translated Amelia Rosselli’s Obtuse Diary, which we are bringing out in Fall of 2018.
We are an independent press in Seattle, Washington. We publish collaborations between poets and artists of all types. We also have an interest in publishing contemporary Argentinian poetry in translation and supporting writers with an interest in Argentinian culture and Jewish history in Latin America. Gay-owned and queerly run.
Here is a little something about book culture in Buenos Aires— It would really be difficult to go for a walk here and not pass a book store. You would have to really make a strategic plan to avoid them. Why one would do that, I do not know.
