Words Without Borders Presents International YA Writing

A panel on international YA voices was held at The New York Public Library to coincide with the issue’s launch. WWB editor Briony Everroad spoke of the challenges and rewards of curating this particular anthology:

...while the YA scene in the English-speaking world shows a branch of publishing that is dynamic, burgeoning, at the forefront of exciting new literary trends, how true is this elsewhere? English-language readers have little opportunity to find out. If very few adult titles are translated into English, the number of YA titles making the journey is even smaller…This is one of the reasons we were so delighted at this opportunity to put together this month’s issue of Words without Borders, to share some of them with English-language readers.
