World Literature for Kids (#WorldKidLit and #WKLMonth) is an initiative co-launched in September 2016 by Alexandra Büchler (Literature Across Frontiers)M. Lynx Qualey (ArabLit), and Lawrence Schimel (author, translator, and publisher at Midsummer Night’s Press).

This month focuses on bringing translated literature and a discussion of world literature to kids, parents, educators, librarians, translators, critics, publishers, and anyone who cares about good books for the not-yet-adult set.
