A big thank you to Peirene Press for visiting the centre and presenting their cheque donation during a celebratory lunch on the 9th January.
Peirene Press, a boutique publishing house, and their readers have supported us with a cheque donation of £3,656 generated from their book sales and Peirene customer donations.
Peirene Press specialise in contemporary European novellas in English translation.
Each year Peirene Press publish a themed series of novellas. The series is made up of three titles, forming a cluster in terms of style and/or content, all of which are usually woven with a psychological aspect and allow the reader to considerably build their own interpretation of the story.
Last year Peirene Press supported the Maya Centre by donating 50p from the sale of each copy of:
Beside the Sea by Véronique Olmi (Peirene No 1)

Muscle feast by Birgit Vanderbeke (Peirene No.10)
Mr Darwin’s Gardener by Kristina Carlson (Peirene No.11)

We also received thirty three extra reader donations of £5.00 from customers ordering books from Peirene – Thank you!
