Language Lanterns Carries On

My mom, Sonia Morris, was a founder of Language Lanterns Publications Inc. along with her sister Roma Franko.

At the time of her passing, Mom and Roma had published 15 volumes of translations of Ukrainian literature into English, accomplishing this immense task after they both retired from the University of Saskatchewan. Roma translated, Mom edited, and I helped out with proofreading and the website.

Roma intends to publish five more volumes over the coming years that Mom had already worked on, and I will help Roma achieve that goal. It'll be a challenge filling Mom's shoes, but it's the least we can do to honour and respect her memory.
