Profile: Sako Ikegami of Kobe can lay claim to various titles (clinical pharmacist, medical translator/writer, children’s book reader), but best enjoys working with young adult books. She aspires to bridge her two cultures, American and Japanese, by translating children’s literature in both. She has translated the Michael L. Printz Award winner First Part Last by Angela Johnson into Japanese, and translated the story “Hachiro” by Ryusuke Saito for Tomo: Friendship Through Fiction—An Anthology of Japan Teen Stories.
