Event description

Description

The festival’s signature translation event returns and tackles this year’s theme INSIDER | OUTSIDER. At Festival Neue Literatur 2015, former festival chairperson and celebrated author Monique Truong noted that “when I think of how much smaller my world would be without literary translations, I am bereft.”

This year’s translation event, entitled “Inside Translation | Outside Ourselves: Connecting Our Worlds,” pays homage to works in translation that have enlarged our lives and countered literary, political, and cultural isolationism.

Panelists:
1. Yoko Tawada and Barbara Epler
2. Ann Goldstein and Jenny McPhee

Moderated by translator and Guggenheim Fellow Tess Lewis.

The event is free of charge and in English. RSVPs are required due to limited seating.
