In this episode, we're excited to share our Women in Translation roundtable discussion with the founder of Host Publications, Joe Bratcher!
Women in Translation Month was launched in 2014, a creation of literary blogger Meytal Radzinski as a response to her observation that only around 30% of books published in translation were by women. At Host Publications, we celebrate women in translation all year round, but August is a special time of year to elevate those writers and share some of our favorites with you!
The Host 88 titles we discussed in this episode are:
- Voices from the Bitter Core by URSULA KRECHEL translated by Amy Kepple Strawser
- Women and Clothes by BRIGITTE KRONAUER trans. By Jutta Ittner
- Reason Enough by Ida Vitale trans. By Sarah Pollack
- Ambers Aglow: An Anthology of Contemporary Polish Women’s Poetry trans. By Regina Grol
These titles can be found on our website, hostpublications.com
We also discussed:
- I Remember Nightfall by Marosa di Giorgio trans. by Jeannine Pitas
- The Collected Poems of Chika Sagawa trans. by Sawako Nakayasu
We recommend shopping these titles on Bookshop.org, where a portion of all sales goes to supporting small, locally owned bookstores across the nation.
