Globe on top of a stack of books next to the words, "World Literature Speakers' Bureau for Public Libraries, Organized by PEN America's Translation Committee"In order to promote an appreciation of world literature and cultivate global solidarity within the general public in the U.S., members of PEN America’s Translation Committee are offering to speak at public libraries. Our members offer presentations on various topics related to the books which they have translated or the cultures/nations in which they specialize. These presentations can be made via Zoom or in person. While donations/honoraria for speakers will be appreciated, they are not mandatory.  Below is the list of speakers and books/topics with contact information for each speaker.  This list will continue to be updated and expanded. If you are a librarian or library employee who is interested in partnering with a member of the Translation Committee, please reach out directly using the contact information below.
