PEN: Catalan Literature’s Modern Tradition

Where: Scandinavia House, 58 Park Ave., New York City

One of the world’s most beautiful romance languages, Catalan, has a rich literary trove, unknown to most of the English-speaking world. A discussion of seminal 20th-century works, such as Llorenc Villalonga’s The Doll’s Room and Josep Pla’s The Gray Notebook, led by renowned Catalan literary historians and translators, will show you a treasure of literature you’ll wish you’d found sooner.

With Enric Bou, Peter Bush, Teresa Solana, and Mary Ann Newman; introduced by Aleksandar Hemon

Free and open to the public. No reservations required.

Co-sponsored by Dalkey Archive Press and New York Review of Books Classics
