Reading Envy 161: Women in Translation Month Recommendations

August is Women in Translation month (#WITMonth,) so Lauren and Jenny have recommendations for you. Some of our recommendations are linked to our reading goals for the year (Jenny's of Asia; Lauren's of Argentina and beyond) but not all. We also take a break in the middle to share recommendations from the founder of WITMonth, Meytal Radzinski. In the show notes, Jenny has linked to episodes where any of the books mentioned are discussed in greater depth, and at the end, the full list of all episodes that include a WIT title.
