RTWCS: The State of International Publishing
Just a reminder for everyone in the Greater Rochester Metro Area (which is apparently the tenth smartest city in the U.S.?) that today at 6pm the next Reading the World Conversation Series event will take place. This one is entitled “The State of International Publishing” and will feature translator Steve Dolph talking about the process of translating Juan Jose Saer’s “The Sixty-Five Years of Washington“:
http://catalog.openletterbooks.org/authors/24#sixtyfive and his experiences publishing CALQUE magazine. Yana Genova from the NextPage Foundation in Bulgaria will talk about publishing in “small” markets and the social impact of translations.
It’s sure to be a lot of fun—just wait until we get into the argument about ebooks!—and I hope to see some of you there.
All the info is on the image below, but just in case—it’s taking place at 6pm in the Hawkins-Carlson Room in the Rush Rhees library.
