Announcing the 2019 Italian Prose in Translation Award Shortlist!

The American Literary Translators Association (ALTA) is delighted to announce the shortlist for the 2019 Italian Prose in Translation Award. Starting in 2015, the Italian Prose in Translation Award (IPTA) recognizes the importance of contemporary Italian prose (fiction and literary non-fiction) and promotes the translation of Italian works into English. This prize is awarded annually to a translator of a recent work of Italian prose (fiction or literary non-fiction). This year’s judges are Allison Grimaldi-Donahue, Alta L. Price, and Zakiya Hanafi. The award-winning book and translator for 2019 will receive a $5,000 cash prize, and the award will be announced during ALTA’s annual conference, ALTA42: Sight and Sound, being held this year from November 7-10 in Rochester, NY.
