Sant Jordi Festival 2023
The Sant Jordi book festival has been thriving in Barcelona for almost a century. Recently I had the pleasure of taking part in the Chicago offshoot in a conversation with Russian translator Ellen Vayner and Italian and German translator Alta Price, both fellow members of the Third Coast Translator's Collective, at City Lit Books. I also had a great online conversation with Japanese translator Emily Balistrieri about our translations of books by Tomihiko Morimi. Watch the in-person event here and the online event here (around hour 1:38). And check out the wonderful, bountiful offerings of Sant Jordi USA here. I can't think of many other places to find such a rich sampling of literary translators around the world talking about and reading from their work.
