Call for Submissions for Translation Award

I received word of the following award:

Northern California Book Awards-Translation Award

Dear Friends:

The Center for the Art of Translation is co-sponsoring the Northern
California Book Award in Translation for the best translation by a Northern
California translator. The deadline for nominations is quickly approaching
so please send in any suggestions for the award.

We are gathering books that may be qualified for the translation award and
ask for your assistance in identifying book-length translations from any
language into English (primarily fiction and poetry, though some non-fiction
will be considered) published by Northern California translators in 2008.
For clarification, Northern California is here defined as Fresno and north
to the Oregon border; the publisher does not have to be from Northern
California, but the translator must currently reside there. This award is
co-sponsored by the Northern California Book Reviewers (formerly Bay Area
Book Reviewers Association/BABRA) and PEN West Translation Committee.

Sponsors of the Northern California Book Awards (with categories in fiction,
non-fiction, poetry, children's literature, and translation) include the
Northern California Book Reviewers, Poetry Flash, and the San Francisco
Public Library. This year's NCBA ceremony will be held at the San Francisco
Main Library in April 2008.


(If the book is due out later in December, we still need all the information
in advance of the deadline.)

For all suggestions, please include the author's name, the translator's
name, the publisher, the original language, and the title of the book, and
send the information to:

Olivia Sears:
