Many global experts in publishing believe that Laguna’s growth is unprecedented in this part of Europe. Laguna owes its success to its writers, whose works inspire, entertain, educate, and move profoundly every time; employees, their responsibility, expertise and passion; partners, the quality of their services and advice and, of course, readers and the trust they put in us!
