We are thrilled to share that a few of our translators and one of our children's books have been included on some exciting awards lists—and that one of our translators has won!

Congratulations to Alissa Valles, who won the 2019 MLA Aldo and Jeanne Scaglione Prize for a Translation of a Literary Work, for her translation of Ryszard Krynicki's Our Life Grows.

Richard Sieburth is on the PEN Award for Poetry in Translation shortlist for his translation of Henri Michaux's A Certain Plume.

Sophie Yanow is on the shortlist for the Scott Moncrieff Prize for her translation of Dominique Goblet's Pretending is Lying.

The Tiger Prince, a picture book by Chen Jiang Hong, is shortlisted for The Albertine's first ever Albertine Prix Jeunesse. A reader's choice award, the winner is voted for by children ages 3 to 11.
