PEN: The Great Global Book Swap
Where: Scandinavia House, 58 Park Ave., New York City
Imagine you are invited to a great global book swap and have to bring just one beloved book originally written in a foreign tongue: what would it be? Join five eminent writers who have trotted the globe and lived everywhere from Ireland to India, Latvia to Sudan, for a reading and a talk about the works of translation that enriched and changed their lives.
With Leila Aboulela, Nathacha Appanah, Mario Bellatín, David Bezmozgis, Rahul Bhattacharya, and Fintan O’Toole
Free and open to the public. No reservations required.
