Founded in 1982, Seagull Books is one of the most important names in radical, independent publishing today with an impressive list of over five hundred books of translated works as well as publications by world renowned writers and poets that include Nobel laureates and Booker prize winners. Seagull publishes several special series dedicated to a wide range of themes and geographic regions. Seagull celebrates its 40th birthday this year!

Host Bhakti Shringarpure speaks to founder Naveen Kishore about his extraordinary and prolific journey. A poet, writer, photographer and theatre practitioner, Kishore joined us from Kolkata, India. He spoke about the types of creative thinking they have employed over the years to survive in a challenging business, their ethical commitment to generosity and collaboration, their superlative designs and most importantly, their cunning twist to the typical approach to the world rights of books. We also congratulated Kishore on the publication of his first volume of poetry, Knotted Grief.
