This is a booklist of more recent works of fiction and graphic novel ideas for our 2019 Reading Challenge.
As the popular book website Book Riot tells us, Women in Translation Month was launched in 2014, the brainchild of literary blogger Meytal Radzinski. #WITMonth started in response to Radzinski’s observation that only around 30% of books published in translation were by women. According to the University of Rochester, which tracks publications of translated fiction and poetry in a database each year, only 17 translated works of fiction by women were published in 2018. Here we include fiction and graphic novels in translation.
