As you can see in the list below, the collaborators are an extremely illustrious group and the topics they are addressing will give non-Catalan readers a much better grasp of the situation in Catalonia. You can also download a PDF of the list. Please share it!
Our crowdfunding campaign at Verkami is designed to both help us finance the distribution of the book directly to libraries, newspapers, and politicians all over the world, as well as to raise awareness of the project among Catalans, who can share it with their friends and family outside of Catalonia. After four days, we are half of the way to our goal.
We want the world to know what is happening in Catalonia. Please like our page on Facebook, and spread the word in any way you can.
