So it’s almost August, which means that Women in Translation Month will soon be upon us, and I hope you’re already cueing up your excellent reading lists and stuffing your beach bags with gorgeous women-authored translated books to keep your brains happily buzzing throughout the dog days of summer. Please share what you’re reading for the month in the comments below and/or tweet them at @translationista, @translatewomen, and @Read_WIT using the hashtags #womenintranslation and #WITmonth. Also check out the WomenInTranslation Tumblr. And if you’d like some reading tips, here’s a great list of 20 recommended books for this year’s WIT Month (with short blurbs on each) from Helen Vassallo of the Translating Women project. I was also excited to discover Rachael Daum’s new blog Bookaccino with nicely caffeinated reviews of translated books by women. You’ll find great reading recommendations there as well.
So I hope you’ll get reading and have a great time doing so! And if you happen to live in or near New York, you can attend some lovely Women in Translation Month events too (and also one being held on the last day of July, a.k.a. Women in Translation Month Eve). And thanks to @Biblibio for the great WIT Month 2019 logo.
Wishing you all a lovely month of reading!
