Here on Modern Mrs Darcy, we’re longtime advocated of reading works in translation. When you read works that weren’t written in your native language, you get out of your own head—or, more specifically, your own culture.
In 2014, Meytal Radzinski established Women in Translation month. We’re wrapping up the fifth August dedicated to reading and promoting the works of women in translation, and the works of women whose work has not yet been translated.
One of the categories for the 2018 Reading Challenge is to read a book in translation. Would you consider one of the following titles for your list, and add your suggestions for other works by women that might fulfill this category in the comments section?
This year there’s more good information than ever available about Women in Translation month. Click here to visit its home on the web, and make sure to check out the other good resources and social media info available there.
Have you read any of these books? Tell us about your experience in comments, and please share more works by women in translation that you’ve read and loved or are looking forward to reading.
