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,

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, where a portion of all sales goes to supporting small, locally owned bookstores across the nation.
