Translated Literature

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 is proud to be a partner with NOTIS, The Northwest Literary Translators, part of the Northwest Translators and Interpreters Society.
