A collection of books from Wales will be launched in India in early 2015. Two Welsh-language authors – Siân Melangell Dafydd and Ned Thomas will be in the country to celebrate the occasion.

The Anthology of Welsh Short Fiction in Bengali translation features the work of ten Welsh authors, including Siân Melangell Dafydd. It will be launched by the Kolkata-based publisher Sampark. Previous anthologies of Welsh fiction have been published in Tamil by Kalachuvadu and Malayalam by D C Books.

Ned Thomas’ memoir Bydoedd (Worlds) won the Best Welsh Book of the Year 2013 Award. The book will be launched in Bengali translation by Sunandan Roy Chowdhury and English translation by the author, both published by Sampark.

More information about the book is available on the Wales Literature Exchange website.
