SALIS Welcomes Members of Elisad!

After 25 years, Elisad -- SALIS's sister organization in Europe -- dissolved their organization earlier this year. The Elisad board worked with SALIS to transfer their members smoothly over to our organization, a truly enriching addition to SALIS as we are now more international than ever.

We'd like to offer a special shout-out to all our non-North American members, including those formerly in Elisad: Bryony Addis-Jones (United Kingdom), Vaughn Birbeck (Portugal), Federica Caselli (Italy), Charlotta Eskilson (Sweden), Beatrix Kovacs (Hungary), Mary Kumvaj (Australia), Johanne Longva (Norway), Mari Mäkinen (Finland), Isabelle Michot (France), Alessandra Liquori O'Neil (Italy), Sorin Oprea (Romania), Maria Palotai (Hungary), Angita Peterse (The Netherlands), Anne Pittet (Switzerland), Petroula Prassa (Greece), Eleni Roussou (Greece), Jane Shelling (Australia), Yaffa Tzubery (Israel), Juan Carlos Vega (Puerto Rico), Rebecca Walsh (UK), Marc Wauters (Belgium), Joseba Zalakain (Spain), Daniela Zardo (Italy). 


Online Booksellers Benefit SALIS

SALIS has affiliations with three major online stores that sell books and other items: Amazon.com, Barnes & Noble.com and Hazelden. Through the affiliate program, SALIS receives a small commission on purchases made online -- books, videos, gifts or anything they sell -- if the shopping originates from a link on the SALIS website. It costs you nothing extra, but you must shop via the links on this website for your purchase to benefit SALIS.
