& OTHER STORIES NEW TRANSLATION PROJECT AND PUBLISHER

Stefan from &otherstories e-mail me a while ago about their group and its project ,which includes group reads of books in the original language to pick books to be translated in to english the is a great choice of groups with books from spain ,Lithuania and Argentina ,The writers they ve choose all seem to be highly talented writers having won awards in their own country .Lithuania has a booming lit scene post communism like the other Baltic states and the chance to get to read in english will be great .please all look at their site or join the good reads group and find out what is going on in this new NON PROFIT publisher .They are also looking for volunteers to help them along the way so I m sure Stefan and the other from &other stories will be pleased to hear from you .they are also on twitter .

    More translated works would be a boon, so I hope this project takes off. For example, it would be wonderful if my son, whose heritage is half-Lithuanian, had some works available from the country where his father’s kin once lived.
