ALTA44 Bookfair

ALTA44 Bookfair

The ALTA Bookfair is always a celebration of the work of our community. Enjoy browsing the titles translated by your colleagues, and know that with every purchase, you're giving back to ALTA and to indie bookstores, and supporting translators and their presses! Virtual Bookfair

During our 2021 conference, ALTA is using to highlight member translations and the titles published by translation presses. As affiliates of Bookshop, Bookshop pays ALTA a 10% commission on every sale, and gives a matching 10% to independent bookstores. Read more about their model here.

Through August 23, ALTA accepted requests for titles to be included in the ALTA44 bookfair on

Please note that not all books are available on Books must have an ISBN and be available through Ingram to appear on We also cannot list books that are sold on Bookshop pages outside of the US (such as the UK Bookshop). We will upload as many titles as we are able. 

Read the World Social Media Bookfair

This year, we are also excited to announce the debut of Read the World! Much like Smol Fair, Read the World will be an online bookfair taking place over social media. ALTA will provide participating publishers and editors with a shared bookfair hashtag (#ReadtheWorld) and discount code, along with graphics, for your use from October 11-17. The more each press and journal spreads the word by using the hashtag and the discount code, the more attention we can drive toward supporting translation publishers. Translators, encourage your publishers to join Read the World!

If you are a publisher or editor and you'd like to participate in Read the World and use the power of social media to spread the word about the work you publish in translation, please write to us at The deadline to be listed on this web page was August 23, but we will still be glad to send you a press kit. It's FREE to participate! 

If you have any questions, please don't hesitate to contact us at
