Lit&Lunch with Writer and Translator Carolina de Robertis
Where: Center for the Art of Translation at 111 Minna Gallery, 111 Minna St., San Francisco, CA 94105 (Minna @ 2nd)
Last year, Carolina de Robertis’ translation of a slender, award-winning Chilean novel called Bonsai became a cult favorite after the book received notable praise, particularly in The Nation. At the same time, de Robertis’ novel The Invisible Mountain was being named one of the year’s best books by the San Francisco Chronicle and O, the Oprah Magazine.
In this Lit&Lunch event, de Robertis talks about what makes Bonsai such a fun, seductive novel, as well as what it’s like to be a translator who also writes acclaimed novels.
