Translated Literature

All languages and genres welcome!

Translators of international literature serve to dissolve stereotypes and open our eyes to the common humanity between people of varying nationalities, cultures and backgrounds. Folio is proud to celebrate the gift translators have to offer, and expand our view of universal literature through presentations featuring local translators and their books.





Folio's partnership with The Northwest Translators and Interpreters Society (NOTIS), a non-profit organization for professional translators and interpreters in the Pacific Northwest continues in 2022, with more translate literature programs in development. The Northwest Literary Translators, part of the Northwest Translators and Interpreters Society, meet the third Thursdays of most months at Folio.
