The 2019 Gutekunst Prize of the Friends of Goethe New York, awarded in a competition in which translators are invited to submit translations of the same predetermined text, always goes to a younger translator who has not yet published a book-length work of translation. This year’s sample text was taken from Jana Hensel’s novel Keinland [Noland]; this year’s jury was made up of Tess Lewis, Alta Price, and Jeremy Davies; and this year’s award has gone to Erin Palombi. Congratulations! The prize will be awarded at a ceremony in New York on May 23. For more information about the book, the award, and the prizewinner, visit the Gutekunst Prize page on the Goethe-Institut USA website.
