Entre dos Mundos: Spanish-English Bilingual Book club -3rd. meeting
September 15 @ 3:00 pm - 5:00 pmFree
Join us for the third meeting of our new bilingual club “Entre dos mundos” on Saturday, September 15th at 3 pm.
We will be commenting Juan Gabriel Vázquez’s El ruido de las cosas al caer, either in its original Spanish version or in its English translation by Anne McLean, The Sound of Things Falling.
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 a description and review of the book here
This book can be purchased at Green Apple Books and online at Barnes & Noble or Amazon.
Always check your local bookstore or library! Your local bookstore might be able to order it for you!
This Book Club started in New York City last November, and it will now run simultaneously in New York and in San Francisco.
For more information on the original idea and the previous books discussed in New York City, you can visit: https://clubdelecturanyc.wordpress.com/.
Happy bilingual reading and see you soon!
