Around the World in Eighteen Books

A Centre for Book Cultures and Book Publishing event

Ruth Ahmedzai Kemp, WorldKidLit, translator from Arabic, German and Russian

Ruth will open a door onto the global children’s publishing industry, looking at how publishing rights are sold from one country to another, how translations are commissioned and funded, how marketing and age-banding varies between territories, why there are so few translations from outside of Europe and so few translated books by non-white authors, and how that could change.

Organised in partnership with Outside in World.

You can join via Teams.
