! September is #WorldKidLItMonth
#WorldKidLit Project World Kid Lit is a global, groundroots community focused on raising awareness of world literature for young people. #WorldKidLit encompasses children’s and young adult books, stories, authors and illustrators, from other countries, and books translated into English from other languages. Check out their website for lots of book reviews of translated children's books, reading lists, and much more!
Global Literature in Libraries Initiative raises visibility of world literature for adults and children at the local, national and international levels by encouraging collaboration between translators, librarians, publishers, editors, and educators and by helping libraries engage readers in exploring world literature. Increased access to books in English translation means increased access to diverse perspectives in books. They award Annual Translated Young Adult Literature Book Prize, they create book lists and themes tied to major translation awards and topics, they offer library programming ideas, they support non-US publishers of English translations and non-US, non-English-language publishers to be able to promote books in libraries, and much more. Check out their website for more information.
