Here’s your chance to win some excellent books in translation. After last year’s incredible success, ALTA is thrilled to present our SECOND Bookfair Bingo on Friday, April 1 (no jokes here!), and Saturday, April 2. Come by the ALTA table (#707) at the conference bookfair and pick up a bingo sheet that features 24 presses that publish superb works of literature in translation. Go to those tables, connect with some great publishers, get them to sign off on your sheet, and one lucky person each day will win 24 free books, generously donated by the participating presses. Be sure to leave room in your suitcase!
What’s more, the AWP conference in Los Angeles is offering a lot of fantastic panels and events that feature our favorite thing, translation. You can find a handy-dandy calendar here that contains all these events. Good luck choosing between them!
We’ll be following these events on our social media: Twitter, Facebook, and Storify. During the event, Tweet or Facebook at us using the hashtags #AWP16 (not #AWP2016!) and #translation.
We hope to see you there, and happy translation hunting!
