DIALOGUE FOUNDATION BOOKS
Dialogue Foundation Books is an independent press founded on December 5, 2015 with the publication of Excavating the Sky, a short, critically-acclaimed collection of poems. Since Peter and Mikhail secured the translation rights for Yaraslav Pelikan's books in 1996, publishing has been central to the Dialogue Foundation. Not only so, but in 2000, the Dialogue Foundation published the groundbreaking interdenominational modern Russian translation of the New Testament by Mikhail P. Kulakov Sr. Committed to transparency and cutting-edge writing, Dialogue Foundation Books seeks work that enriches dialogue, global justice or healing in conflict.
Around 2011, Mikhail's son, Konstantin Kulakov completed "If We Burn Them Altogether," a longer, intensely personal and political poem seeing-anew Muslim Christian conflict. In Russia, Olga Suvorova, co-founder of the Russian chapter of Dialogue Foundation expressed the need for Konstantin's work to be read. In 2014, thanks to the endorsements from Cornel West, Jill Baumgaertner, Brian Teare, and David Rosenberg, Mikhail and Lyuda Kulakov decided to fund the publication of Excavating the Sky in original English with Dialogue Foundation Books becoming a new press. The urgency of a local original English publication prevailed. Dialogue Foundation Books was born.
Dialogue Foundation Books accepts writing (religious/spiritual, poetry, fiction, memoir, non-fiction, and scholarly/academic writing) that makes a significant contribution to dialogue, justice or healing in spite religious, national, racial, gender, and economic conflict.
