Launched in the summer of 2015 by Todd Portnowitz and Sam Bett, Us&Them is a quarterly reading series, held at Molasses Books in Brooklyn, that gives writer-translators a platform to read from both sides of their work. Each reading features four readers and showcases literature from all over the world. Special Us&Them events have been held in Massachusetts, San Francisco, Los Angeles, Washington D.C. and Cuba.
