Year of Reading Archipelago Books

Archipelago Books, now celebrating their 20th Anniversary, is a not-for-profit literary press devoted to publishing works of translation of classic and contemporary world literature. Sharing our stories helps to dissolve stereotypes, encourage understanding and engages our humanity.  We've chosen Archipelago Books to be our Broadway Books 2024 Year of Reading series to highlight international voices that we might not otherwise encounter in the United States. We believe that cultural understanding begins with storytelling and we hope you'll join us in our literary travels around the world this year! In honor of the Year of Reading, we will offer a 20% discount on all titles published by Archipelago and have curated a list of favorites for you to choose from.  We can't wait to share these important and beautiful works with you!

NOTE: Even if you see "out of stock indefinitely" attached to the below books, we can likely get the books for you.
