Black Eagle Books is a nonprofit publishing endeavor to propagate Odia literature globally. It was established in April 2019 in Dublin, Ohio, USA. So far, this publication has published over 230 titles in different languages. The major goals of this publication house are to make Odia books available globally, provide a platform to diaspora authors and authors not accessible to mainstream publishers, revive valuable old books which have been out of print, carry out translation projects and make those available globally, educate, inspire and support writers in various ways, etc. Books published by BEB are available worldwide and never out of print as we use the latest technology in the publishing process. AlsoBlack Eagle Books have filed the registration for its India operation – and Books in India which will be received in a couple of weeks.
BEB Intellect Center is an 800-square-foot air-conditioned hall divided into two parts. In one part, books (ours and other publishers who collaborate with us) will be exhibited. A booklover can walk around and have a look and feel of the books before buying. This section has dedicated spaces for authors whose all books are available with us so that the reader has a one-stop shop for an author.
In the other part, there are 26 chairs for the audience and 4 chairs for guests. This can be used for different literary activities like book release, meeting the author, group discussions, brainstorming sessions, poetry/story readings, book signing programs, workshops, etc. Situated in a convenient location (1 min walk from CRP square behind Anna restaurant) this facility would be very helpful for readers/writers.
