As Open Letter enters into its tenth year of activity, its mission of expanding the diversity of the American literary scene is more important than ever. Although the press has inspired a significant change in the way that international literature is viewed by tastemakers, booksellers, and readers across the country, it's still true that less than 3% of published books are in translation.
Given the power of literary arts to reach a wide audience—books are one of the most democratic art forms, available to audiences everywhere at a reasonable price—they also serve as one of the best ways to learn about another culture.
Your support will make it possible for Open Letter to bring a variety of international authors to underserved audiences across the country.
Additionally, funds raised will allow Open Letter to offer additional internships to students and young translators looking to break into the nonprofit publishing field.
We appreciate all your support in helping us to continue to not only publish the books people will still be reading in a hundred years, but develop the audience of readers and professionals to appreciate and act on these books.
