Welcome back from the summer. Here’s what’s going on this early September:
Thursday Sept. 10:
“A Literary Tribute to Alastair Reid”: This program will feature the renowned translators Edith Grossman and Gregory Rabassa along with other friends and colleagues of Reid, the Scottish poet, essayist, and translator (Borges, Neruda, etc.) who passed away last year. It should be a high-powered conversation with lots of excellent translation lore. Admission charge of $10; free for Americas Society members. More information here. Americas Society, 680 Park Ave., 7:00 p.m.
