Katherine E Young will Read for PEN Women in Translation Month Reading Series (virtual)
August 19, 2021 @ 2:00 pmFree
Katherine E Young, translator of Russian-language poet, Anna Starobinets, will read alongside Starobinets as part of PEN’s Woman in Translation Reading Series.
From the website:
“August is here, and it’s time to celebrate Women in Translation (#WiT) Month again! This reading series was initiated by blogger Meytal Radzinski in 2014 to raise awareness of translated literature by women, queer, and nonbinary authors, and promote gender and cultural diversity in literary publishing. This year, our virtual reading series will gather voices from across time zones for an international celebration!
Organized under the support of the PEN America Translation Committee, these events will bring together a total of 15 translators, joined by their authors, working in 12 languages from across the world, including Cameroon French, Canadian French, Chinese, Czech, German, Hebrew, Japanese, Korean, Portuguese, Russian, Spanish, and Swedish. The reading will be followed by a brief Q&A discussion, time-permitting. We hope you’ll join us for these one-of-a-kind bilingual readings!”
