Support Elsewhere Editions
Elsewhere Editions is an imprint of Archipelago Books, a non-profit devoted to publishing outstanding translations of classic and contemporary world literature. We believe that artistic exchange between cultures is a crucial aspect of global understanding: literature can act as a catalyst to dissolve stereotypes and reveal the common humanity between people of different nationalities, cultures, and backgrounds.
We see Elsewhere as a natural and necessary extension of our mission. We believe it is vital that other ways of seeing and being are open to young readers here. At this moment when xenophobia is so freely expressed, the windows these children’s titles provide onto other worlds fill a lamentable void in our bookshops, libraries, and on our children’s bookshelves. We were thrilled to embark upon this endeavor with our first title, Claude Ponti’s marvelous My Valley (translated by Alyson Waters), in March of 2017.
We are committed to furthering these ideals by publishing children’s books from around the world in beautiful, full-color editions and by bringing their authors to present their work at bookstores, libraries, schools, and cultural centers across the country. Your involvement is absolutely crucial to this success of this project. It will allow our vision to become a reality, for these transformative works of children’s literature to reach English-language readers, both young and old.
All donations are tax-deductible. Your generosity is essential in making available these extraordinary children’s authors for English-language readers both young and old.
