Publishers of translated books, booksellers, and literary critics discussed the problems of publishing, marketing, and selling works in translation, including reversing the trend of fewer translated works being published.

Mr. Johnson, who also edits MobyLives.com, served as moderator. Melville House Publishing hosted the event.
