Book Party for PEN Translation Fund Recipient Nathanaël

Readers of this blog know all about the PEN Translation Fund awards. This program is a great way for younger/just-starting-out translators to get some much needed recognition for their work, and the grants are competitive enough that you have to be quite good to get one. This Saturday one of this year’s winners is presenting his work in a public reading at a prestigious location: Poets House! Here’s the info:
