Ann Morgan: My year reading a book from every country in the world

12:03 minutes · TEDGlobal>London

Ann Morgan considered herself well read — until she discovered the “massive cultural blindspot” in her bookshelf. Amid a multitude of English and American authors, discount there were very few works from authors beyond the English-speaking world. So she set an ambitious goal: to read one book from every country in the world over the course of a year. Now she’s urging other Anglophiles to read translated works so that publishers will work harder to bring foreign literary gems back to their shores.
