The next biennial SCBWI Japan Translation Day will be held on Saturday, October 22, 2016, in Yokohama. The full program and speaker bios are here:

Our featured speaker and workshop leader will be Ginny Tapley Takemori, translator of The Whale That Fell In Love with a Submarine by Akiyuki Nosaka and The Secret of the Blue Glass by Tomiko Inui. The workshop texts feature the work Grave of the Fireflies by Akiyuki Nosaka.

Also joining us will be manga translator Zack Davisson (via Skype from Seattle), publisher Julia Marshall of Gecko Press (via pre-recorded Skype from Wellington, because she will physically be at the Frankfurt Book Fair), and Yumiko Sakuma--translator, critic, and expert on Japanese children's books, including titles yet to be translated!

Please join us and help us spread the word!
