Women in Translation - WIT and wisdom.

By review

August is WITMonth - aka Women in Translation Month - is an annual celebration of women and non-binary writers from around the world, writing in languages other than English. Started by Meytal Radzinski in 2014. 

These are some old and new favourites. We have lots of these on the shelves in the shop all the time. For us, every month is W.I.T. month!

Check out Womenintranslation.org for more inspiration and #WITmonth on Twitter and @readWIT on Instagram.
