Entre dos Mundos: Spanish-English Bilingual Book club -3rd. meeting

September 15 @ 3:00 pm - 5:00 pm

Free

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.
