37th Annual Translation Prize Awards Ceremony

New York City - RSVP

Honoring Excellence in French-to-English Translation

Join us on Tuesday, June 18th for the French-American Foundation’s 37th Annual Translation Prize Awards Ceremony, held in the Rare Book Room at The Strand Bookstore. The evening will serve to celebrate our winning translators for their outstanding French-to-English translations, in fiction and nonfiction, published in 2023. Winners will receive awards totaling $20,000 thanks to the generous support of the Florence Gould Foundation. Acknowledgement will also be bestowed to our finalists for their translations of exceptional quality.

We are honored to welcome members of our jury, as well as keynote speaker Jonathan W. Galassi (poet, translator, and Chairman of Farrar, Straus & Giroux), to lead this year’s ceremony. This event is free and open to the public – we look forward to celebrating the art of translation with you and raising a glass to French-American cultural exchange.
