Happy August! Or as we like to call it, Women in Translation Month. 2019 marks the sixth year of celebrating books in translation authored/translated by women, an effort begun by Meytal Radzinski. While this celebration comes from a place of great disparity in the industry (less than five percent of books published in the United States are translated; even fewer are by women), we’re always excited to see the initiative come around.
Celebration abounds at Deep Vellum. All titles on our site are 20% off, so this is a perfect time to order the book by Zahia Rahmani or Maria Gabriela Llansol you’ve been eyeing. In addition, we’ll be posting about these titles and more all month long, so sign up for our newsletter and keep checking back.
And finally, The Giveaway:
We will be giving away a copy of these beautiful books to four lucky winners!
Here’s how to enter:
1. Post a picture of the Deep Vellum book you’d like to win (options are Recitation, Blood Sisters, Sphinx, and Eve Out of Her Ruins) to Instagram, Facebook, or Twitter
2. Tag us
3. Hashtag #WITMonth or #WomenInTranslationMonth
Winners will be announced on August 31!
*To win a physical copy of the title, you must live in the contiguous United States. However, feel free to enter from elsewhere; you will be eligible to win an eBook of the title!
