October 2, 2021 - 11:45am to 1:00pm - in English

Sandra Smith has translated over 30 books, and has won the French-American Translation Prize, the PEN Translation Prize, the Independent British Booksellers Book of the Year Prize and the National Jewish Book Award. She will be giving a presentation titled “What is translation?”, and discussing her most recent works.

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 Child by Irène Némirovsky, and In the Shadows of Paris by Anne Sinclair.
