International School of Brooklyn (ISB) librarians Maria Falgoust and Amy Ribakove have included Elsewhere in their wonderful guide to building a library of translated literature. “Reading translated literature can build empathy, show the universality of emotions and experiences, spark curiosity and build new connections,” they write. “What’s not to love??”
Maria and Amy shared some of their favorite presses that specialize in literature in translation (Enchanted Lion, Elsewhere Editions, Yonder, and more!) – as well as recommended newsletters, resources, and programming ideas. You can read the full guide here!
