Did you ever wonder how a book written in another language ends up in your library and bookstores in English? We often take it
for granted, but translating books is a tricky business - but very creative and satisfying! Come along and hear a professional literary
translator talk about the process and her latest publications, Inseparable
by Simone de Beauvoir, The Prodigal
Irène Némirovsky, and In the Shadows of Paris
by Anne Sinclair.
