Entre dos Mundos: Spanish-English Bilingual Book club – 4th. meeting

October 13 @ 3:00 pm - 5:00 pm


Join us for our next meeting of our bilingual Spanish-English bookclub “Entre dos mundos” on Saturday, October 13 at 3 pm.

We will be commenting Alejandro Zambra‘s Formas de volver a casa, either in its original Spanish version or in its English translation by Megan McDowell, Ways to Go Home.

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.

You can find descriptions and reviews about the book here: https://www.theguardian.com/books/2013/jan/13/ways-going-home-zambra-review, and https://www.elcultural.com/revista/letras/Formas-de-volver-a-casa/29560.

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