With the madness of the holiday season upon us, what better respite than a nice translation event? Here’s what’s I’ve heard about that’s coming up:
Thursday, Dec. 18:
This edition of French Night at the Cornelia will celebrate French Contemporary Gay and Lesbian Fiction, featuring Joseph Patrick Stancil reading from his translation of The Sleepworker by Cyrille Martinez, Lara Vergnaud reading from her translation of Standard by Nina Bouraoui, and several students from the NYU MA program in French-English literary translation reading from their group translation of Tranvestite/Travesti by David Dumortier. I hear some of the French writers may be there as well. At the Cornelia Street Cafe, 29 Cornelia St., more information here. 6:00 p.m.
