Poetry in Translation

October 12th and 13th, there'll be a miniature festival of literary translation at Gallery 1412 - foregrounding the translators themselves, the surprises and evils of the practice, the conversation between the worlds here at play - nearly everyone represented in the festival is a poet-translator, though there are many further surprises as well

Both nights start at 7PM, and are free (though donation is encouraged). There'll be snacks throughout and a discussion after the readings. And doubtless lots of beautiful books as a two of the translators are also small press editors/printmakers/those-that-make-books-by-hand.
