The first half of this month was packed with events, but now the election has cast a pall over the entire planet, it seems, and I for one don’t even want to get up off the sofa, though I’d best make myself do so tomorrow if I don’t want to miss my own Nov. 15 event at the Austrian Cultural Forum. Fortunately the ever-resourceful Asian American Writers’ Workshop has come up with a soul-soothing event for the end of the month that I expect will provide at least a little much-needed solace.
Wednesday, Nov. 30:
Diaspora, Migration and Translation: an event in the estimable Bridge series, this time featuring translators who are all first or second generation immigrants or who identify as belonging to a diaspora. This event celebrates the the spring 2017 issue of the journal Aster(ix) that will be devoted to immigrant and/or POC translators. Featuring Mona Kareem, Genya Turovskaya, Zohra Saed, and moderators Sal Robinson and Madhu Kaza. RSVP recommended, more information here. Asian American Writers’ Workshop, 110-112 W. 27th St., 6th Fl., 7:00 p.m.
