Entre dos Mundos: Spanish-English Bilingual Book club – 9th. meeting

May 25 @ 3:00 pm - 5:00 pm

Free
Our next meeting of our bilingual Spanish-English bookclub “Entre dos mundos” will be on Saturday, May 25 from 3 pm to 5 pm. We will be commenting Patricio Pron’s El espíritu de mis padres sigue subiendo en la lluvia, either in its original Spanish version or in its English version My fathers’ Ghost Keep Rising in the Rain translated by Faye Letham. Or both!
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.

I got my Spanish version here: https://www.betterworldbooks.com/product/detail/El-Espitritu-de-MIS-Padres-Sique-Subiendo-En-La-Lluvia-9780345804129. The English translation is easier to find. Always check around your neighborhood before ordering in Amazon if you like supporting local, independent businesses.
