Translation on Tap in NYC, June 1 – 15, 2015

I’m on my way to London to participate with Jenny Erpenbeck in an event on Tuesday at the London Review Bookshop for finalists for the 2015 Independent Foreign Fiction Prize; the prize itself will be announced Wednesday evening U.K. time (wish me luck!) And when I get home I’ll be turning right around to travel to Vermont to teach in the first ever Bread Loaf Translators’ Conference. So I figured I’d better get this posted before it got lost in the whirlwind. Hope I didn’t leave anything out. These are all the early-June events I’ve heard about to date. (Oh, and don’t forget about the late-May lineup – there’s tons going on as we speak.)
