ENTRE DOS MUNDOS: SPANISH-ENGLISH BILINGUAL BOOK CLUB – 2nd Meeting

July 28 @ 3:00 pm - 5:00 pm

Free

Join us for the second meeting of our new bilingual club “Entre dos mundos” on Saturday, July 28. We will be commenting Ricardo Piglia’s Blanco nocturno, either in its original Spanish version or in its English translation by Sergio Waisman, Target in the Night.

That’s 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.

You can find Piglia’s book description and review in English here and in Spanish here.

Piglia’s book can be purchased at Green Apple Books and online at Barnes & Noble or Amazon.

Happy bilingual reading and see you soon!
