Join us for our Annual Women in Translation reading and discssion!
August is Women in Translation Month! In 2014, literary blogger Meytal Radzinski launched WITMonth in response to Radzinski’s observation that so few books published in translation were by women. Of all the books published in English each year, roughly 3 to 4 percent are translations and, of those, roughly 27 to 30 percent are by women. For this event, a lineup of writers, translators, and editors will read poetry and prose from this often overlooked, always exciting, niche and then discuss the biases affecting translations published in the United States.
The line-up for this year's event includes:
Susan Harris (moderator)
Alta L. Price (German & Italian)
Kevin Gerry Dunn (Spanish)
Denise Kripper (Argentinian Spanish)
Todd Hasak-Lowy (Hebrew)
Winifred Bird (Japanese)
