PEN America Women in Translation Month Reading Series

This reading series was initiated by blogger Meytal Radzinski in 2014 to raise awareness of translated literature by women, queer, and nonbinary authors, and promote gender and cultural diversity in literary publishing. This year, our free, virtual reading series will gather voices from across time zones for an international celebration!

Organized under the support of the PEN America Translation Committee, these events will bring together three panels of translators, joined by their authors, working in a diversity of languages. The readings will be followed by a brief Q&A discussion, time-permitting. We hope you’ll join us for these one-of-a-kind bilingual readings!
