It's Women in Translation Month!

It's no secret that we love reading books in translation here at Book Culture. Anyone who spends time browsing the shelf talkers at the store will see that our favorite writers come from all over the world and write in many different languages. Though books in translation make up only 3% of all books published in any given year, they are some of the most exciting and memorable books out there, and we are grateful for the translators and publishers whose work allows us to read these amazing books.

The fantastic and funny poet Patricia Lockwood has been a longtime favorite at Book Culture.
