Awards: Warwick Women in Translation; 800-CEO-READ

A shortlist has been unveiled for the £1,000 (about $1,140) Warwick Prize for Women in Translation, which was established by the University of Warwick in 2017 to "address the gender imbalance in translated literature and to increase the number of international women's voices accessible by a British and Irish readership." The winner will be named November 13. This year's shortlisted titles are:

Belladonna by Daša Drndić, translated from Croatian by Celia Hawkesworth
Flights by Olga Tokarczuk, translated from Polish by Jennifer Croft
Go Went Gone by Jenny Erpenbeck, translated from German by Susan Bernofksy
River by Esther Kinsky, translated from German by Iain Galbraith
The House with the Stained-Glass Window by Żanna Słoniowska, translated from Polish by Antonia Lloyd-Jones
The White Book by Han Kang, translated from Korean by Deborah Smith


800-CEO-READ announced the longlist for its 12th annual Business Book Awards, which can be seen here. On December 4, winners in each of the eight categories will be named and then vie for overall winner, which will be announced at the company's January 17 event in New York City. At that event, the fifth annual Jack Covert Award for Contribution to the Business Book Industry will also be celebrated.
