Tickets are cheaper if you buy them in advance, and especially cheaper ($4) if you use the Asymptote-authorized Translationista promotional code “Bernofskyrate” when purchasing online.

Tuesday, March 15:
The Bridge Series: Editing Translations. This is the series co-produced by the PEN Translation Committee. Four valiant editors of translations (including moderator Sal Robinson, who’ll be joined by Lexy Bloom, Jeremy Davies, and Declan Spring) will talk about “the pleasures and puzzles” of working on translated manuscripts. This should be good. RSVP highly recommended. More information here. The Center for Fiction, 17 E. 47th St., 7:00 p.m.
