There’s Something About Translation…
With: Daniel Kehlmann, Natasha Wimmer, Álvaro Enrigue, Laura Perciasepe, Ann Goldstein, Joshua Rothman
Moderator: Sal Robinson
Join Festival Neue Literatur in an intimate conversation about literature in translation with NYC’s celebrated literary editors, translators, and authors. If you’ve ever wondered how your favorite book from abroad arrived at your local bookstore and in our cultural consciousness, join us for a snapshot into this fascinating journey narrated by the people who have made it happen. Featured works include: Elena Ferrante’s DAYS OF ABANDONMENT; Álvaro Enrigue’s SUDDEN DEATH: A NOVEL; and Daniel Kehlmann’s FAME.
Festival Neue Literatur (FNL) was established as a collaborative project of New York’s leading German-language cultural institutions: the Austrian Cultural Forum, the Consulate General of Germany, the Consulate General of Switzerland, Deutsches Haus at Columbia University, Deutsches Haus at NYU, the German Book Office New York, Goethe-Institut New York, and Pro Helvetia. All FNL events are free of charge, though RSVPs are required. The 2016 Festival will take place from February 25 to 28, 2016.
