About this project

This website is a community project run by volunteers in several countries.

Our intention is to share reviews of Russian-language books for children and young adults, in an effort to help more English language publishers hear about as-yet untranslated books, both new and old.

With a view to decolonizing what is thought of as Russophone literature, we are keen to showcase the wealth and diversity of writing for young people in Eastern Europe and Central Asia.

We hope the site will also be useful to parents, teachers and librarians keen to diversify their book collections and to offer younger readers books in translation.

If you have a children’s or YA book in mind that you’d like to write about, please get in touch: russophonekidlit@gmail.com
