Entre dos Mundos: Spanish-English Bilingual Book club – 12th. meeting

November 9, 2019 @ 3:00 pm - 5:00 pm

Our next meeting of our bilingual Spanish-English bookclub “Entre dos mundos” will be on Saturday, November 9 from 3 pm to 5 pm. We will be commenting Leonardo Padura’s La cola de la serpiente, either in its original Spanish version or in its English version Grab a Snake by the Tail translated by Peter Bush. Or both! It’s a very short novel! You can find a review of the book here: Review in English.
This is the fun thing about this book club! It’s totally up to you: you can choose to read the book either in Spanish or in its English translation, or in both! During the meeting, we will have bilingual discussions on different aspects of the book, including topics that are interesting to translators, such as the linguistic, stylistic and cultural choices made in translation.
For more information on this Bookclub’s original idea and the previous books discussed in New York City, where it originally initiated and still runs as well, you can visit: https://clubdelecturanyc.wordpress.com/. To know about our upcoming meetings, follow us in our MeetUp Group: https://www.meetup.com/Linguists-Translators-and-Interpreters-in-the-Bay-Area.
Happy bilingual reading and see you soon!
