I’d like to say there were lots and lots of translation events happening in the city this month, but as far as I can tell, everyone’s on vacation. If you hear about something, let me know. The first-ever Queens Book Festival is happening this weekend, and that’s exciting, though there’s no translation programming on the roster; maybe next year; and if you go out and hit the book exhibits, you’ll find at least one publisher specializing in translations hawking their books at a discount. So you might just have to spend the month reading. And since August is Women in Translation Month, guess what sorts of books I’m going to suggest you pick up to while away the dog days? See you in September!
