We’re thrilled to announce the lineup of table hosts and special guests for the 2016 WWB Gala. Hosted by Roxana Saberi with honorary chair Edith Grossman, the gala will be held Tuesday, November 1 at Three Sixty° Tribeca in New York City. A terrific group of authors and translators will join us as we celebrate the power of international literature and honor Barbara Epler with the 2016 Ottaway Award for the Promotion of International Literature, presented to her by Hilton Als.
