World Literature Weekend at the London Review Bookshop

June 9th, 2011 § 0 comments

From the website:

“We are delighted to announce our third annual World Literature Weekend, a celebration of foreign literature, which involves both writer and translator. This year’s theme is history and its traces in the present – the scars left in lands and people. Participants, who have all engaged deeply with the force of history and memory, include bestselling novelists Javier Cercas, Cees Nooteboom and Daniel Kehlmann, and Galician novelist and activist Manuel Rivas, best known here for Butterfly’s Tongue, the film of his novel.”

The event features a “live translation” marathon.  Details here; programme here.
