Europa Celebrates International Women's Day!

Women Write the World Banner

Europa Editions is celebrating International Women's Day (March 8th, 2019) this year by spotlighting over 70 titles from across the world by female authors and translators - because women produce incredible fiction and nonfiction everyday!

Many of Europa's perennial bestsellers are by women including the charming The Nakano Thrift Shop by Hiromi Kawakami, +1 million copies sold The Elegance of the Hedgehog by Muriel Barbery,My Brilliant Friend by Elena Ferrante which has been adapted into HBO series, the The Distant Marvels by Chantel Acevedo and more.

From books translated from their original languages of Greek, Italian, Japanese, Spanish to beloved and award-winning British female authors like the wonderful Jane Gardam, the titles included on the Women Write the World list are as diverse, engaging and brilliant as the women that write and translate them.

"For me, women’s history month isn’t just about celebrating those famous female figures who have been at the forefront of social and political progress over the centuries; it’s also about the millions upon millions of women who lived their lives without ever being allowed to have a voice, who never had the chance to express their intellect and ingenuity and talent. As a woman and a translator it’s my privilege to be a small part of the effort to ensure that women will never be silenced again, that female voices from every country and culture and every part of society will continue to enrich, instruct, and entertain us, now and for ever."

—Tina Kover (2018 Translated National Book Award finalist, translator of Disoriental by Négar Djavadi)
