Women in translation
Did you know that less than a third of all literary translations published in the UK and the US were originally written by women? Did you know that women writers win far fewer prizes for their translated books than male writers?
Women in Translation Month is all about appreciating the great women writers who do get translated – and of course the people who bring them to us, their translators and publishers. It’s an opportunity to join in a worldwide conversation about outstanding writing from all over the globe. The team behind Women in Translation Month has put together an extensive, although by no means exhaustive, list of books by women in translation from around the world. Use it to inspire your summer reading, organise a themed reading group or discuss favourite translated reads with others.

Our childhood favourites
The Summer Reading Challenge is the UK’s biggest reading event for children in libraries. To mark the beginning of this year’s challenge, we polled readers nationwide to find out the best-loved children’s book character! Inspired by your answers, we’ve come up with some of our own childhood favourites.
