Found In Translation

Why should you read books translated into English from another language? Writing translated from another language makes you see things differently. It has many of the benefits of travel, but from the comfort of your own home: a deeper understanding of cultural differences; a new perception of your innate assumptions; and an opportunity to see issues and daily life challenges from a different angle. Here is a selection of our many books translated from another language into English. Check one out, then feel free join us for a relaxed discussion at April’s Random Reader’s Book Group on April 10, 2019 at 4:00 p.m.
