Agents of Discovery. Tracking Down Talents in Translation

Meet publishers committed to bringing us stories from outside the Anglophone bubble.

From the great masterpieces of world literature, to romance fiction from Africa, to contemporary European fiction, translated literature and English-language fiction from beyond our borders reminds us we are not alone in an uncertain world. Despite this only three percent of books published in the UK are in translation.

Meet the publishers committed to bucking this trend, and to bringing us stories beyond what we expect. Join the publishers of Peirene Press (Meike Ziervogel) And Other Stories (Stefan Tobler) and Cassava Republic (Bibi Bakare-Yusuf) for a conversation about how they track down new talents in English and in translation. Chaired by Ellah Allfrey.

3 October, 4:30 p.m. Southbank Centre, Weston Roof Pavilion at Royal Festival Hall. More information here.
