We are excited to announce that Lannan Foundation has come forward to offer Archipelago Books a matching challenge grant of up to $25,000. If we can raise the full amount by June 1st, your contribution will be matched dollar for dollar.
We believe, and Lannan agrees, that literature can change the world. We are doing what we can to find perceptive, courageous, and imaginative voices from around the world, and bring them to English-language readers in outstanding translations. The larger community around our small staff makes what we do possible.
We urge you to contribute what you can before June 1st to meet Lannan’s matching challenge grant.
As cultural budgets are slashed across the board, it is necessary for us to seek a larger portion of our support from individual donors like you. In our first 15 years, we have published more than 170 classic and contemporary works from more than 35 languages. Every donation helps us continue publishing essential books. Thank you for being a part of our efforts, and our future.
