Culturally Diverse Books In Translation Make Up Marsh Award Shortlist

Posted at 4:13PM Thursday 17 Jan 2013

Five translated books for children have been shortlisted for the Marsh award, a prize which celebrates the high quality of translated fiction for young people.

Each of the novels selected was originally published in a foreign language, but have since been translated into English, allowing children in the UK the chance to read about a wider range of social and cultural subjects.
