Read the World Virtual Bookfair

This year, we are also excited to announce the debut of Read the World! Much like Smol Fair, Read the World will be an online bookfair taking place over social media. ALTA will provide participating publishers and editors with a shared bookfair hashtag (#ReadtheWorld) and discount code, along with graphics, for your use from October 11-17. The more each press and journal spreads the word by using the hashtag and the discount code, the more attention we can drive toward supporting translation publishers. Translators, encourage your publishers to join Read the World!

It's FREE to participate! You will be sent a press kit this fall, and your press or journal's name will be added to this webpage. ALTA will help with retweeting your posts about Read the World. Deadline: August 23
