Wilkes-Barre, PA, October 6, 2021 – The Kops-Fetherling organization is dedicated to bringing awareness of great books to the masses. Millions of great books go unread and their mission is to help change that. Two books from Kallisti Publishing Inc. were given the honor of the coveted Kops-Fetherling Book Award.

“We make some excellent books,” said Anthony Raymond Michalski, owner and publisher at Kallisti Publishing Inc., “and it’s excellent that our titles were recognized for just how good they are.”

The two books in question are from Kallisti Publishing Inc.’s memoir and autobiography line. Walk, Don’t Run: A Rockin’ and Rollin’ Memoir is Steven Jae Johnson’s story of his years trying to make it to the big-time in a rock ’n’ roll band on the Sunset Strip with his best friend Edward James Olmos. From outlandish and comical adventures to meeting the rich and famous to tragedy and disappointment, Walk, Don’t Run has been called a “rollicking good time” by reviewers.
