Member Happy Hour: Eavesdropping on Other Cultures--Reading Globally

Description:

Literature in translation offers readers a glimpse into other cultures and writing styles, the chance to eavesdrop on the conversation that members of a certain language and culture are holding with one another. But translated literature in the US still represents a minuscule portion of the books published annually. In this talk, we'll discuss the “hot” world literatures today, issues of translation, and writers writing in English from a different cultural and linguistic perspective.

Fallenberg will be available to sign books (available for sale on-site from Tattered Cover) following the talk, from 5:30 to 6:00 PM. 

Please note: This event is free to members. If you're a current member, please RSVP on Facebook or to laura@lighthousewriters.org. Non-members can purchase a membership here, or sign up for $10 without a membership. Space is limited.
