Help us expand perspectives through books. Be a part of our growing literary community.

Booksellers provide an essential link between authors and readers. The more opportunities they have to engage meaningfully with international authors, agents, publishers, and authors the greater the benefits to readers. Since 2016, Books Across Borders (BAB) has been providing booksellers in the U.S. and around the world with fellowships to connect with international book fairs and exchange ideas with each other to become more effective advocates for international voices.

Becoming familiar with multiple and diverse cultural perspectives is more important now than ever. Booksellers are a vital link.

To continue with this valuable initiative, become a part of the Books Across Borders community by supporting the project. By doing so you will be helping to put more diverse and international books into the hands of readers.

There are so many opportunities for booksellers to engage with the international book scene and so many more ways that they can enrich your experience as a reader.

The community behind BAB includes bookstores, publishers, editors, writers, designers, agents, illustrators, and many other important members of the book publishing world. BAB alumni are helping us develop a database of contacts and resources that can be shared with all booksellers, encouraging the entire bookselling community to become more effective advocates for international and diverse voices.

BAB promotes bibliodiversity, cultural diversity, and access to new perspectives. Books Across Borders is having a positive impact on the culture of reading in this country by encouraging booksellers to introduce new and exciting international voices to American readers. You can be a part of the exciting BAB community by supporting this campaign or sharing this page with friends, family, and colleagues.
