Some of the most dynamic and exciting voices in European literature today are those of women – yet there is a significant gender gap when it comes to publishing literature in translation. Join Naja Marie Aidt, Josefine Klougart, and Bettina Suleiman, as they talk to PEN Translation Committee Co-Chair Margaret S. Carson about their writing, as well as the challenges and opportunities women authors face in Europe. Special guest Chad Post, publisher of Open Letter Books at the University of Rochester, and editor of Three Percent will give an inside look at the picture in the United States, and how publishers can help address the imbalance.
