Some cool things to check out, read and explore:
- #WITMonth on Instagram! Lots of cool pics and displays, definitely giving me more ideas for next time...
- BookRiot has had not one, but four posts covering WITMonth! Some great recommendations looking ahead, plus a wonderful post by M. Lynx Qualey about how we can advance the cause from here.
- PEN America continued their series on the women in translation project, most recently posting about winners of the PEN Translation Prize which were translated by women.
- Men in translation recommended women in translation.
- Many wonderful bloggers continued contributing excellent reviews and WITMonth content, including (but not limited to!): Word by Word, Tony's Reading List, The Writes of Woman, JacquiWine's Journal, 1streading, Messengers Booker, HerStory Novels, way more bloggers I'm missing (sorry sorry sorry!), and of course the whole Twitter tag which is basically just a trick to convince you to read loads more amazing books! Many readers compiled lists throughout the month which are definitely worth checking out too.
- Granta Magazine published a story by Silvina Ocampo for WITMonth!
- Estandarte published a general piece on WITMonth (in Spanish), encouraging the project to be expanded into other languages as well (I am in full agreement).
- The New York Public Library posted a great list of Yiddish women writers in translation.
- Words Without Borders published an extensive list of 31 books by women writers in translation worth checking out.
- TANK Magazine spotlighted works by women in translation.
- The Women in Translation Tumblr continues to be an excellent resource in every way, shape and form.
As always, I know I'm forgetting so much excellent WITMonth content... but here's just a taste. There were also lots of great giveaways, photos, tweets, recommendations and lists floating around! It is well worth going through the #WITMonth tag on Twitter, in my opinion, and scouting around for excellent books. Your TBR will come away far richer for it.
We still have a few more days of WITMonth, but that doesn't mean our work is done! More to come...
