Join us for the much-anticipated U.S. tour of Words Without Borders anthology of great Spanish works, previously little-known to English-speaking audiences. This tour will give audiences the chance to meet and talk with some of the contributors to this anthology.
Several members of the project, from editors to translators to the authors and poets themselves, will present in three different U.S. cities about the value of translation and about what this diverse array of Spanish language poetry, fiction and essays —many appearing in English for the first time in this anthology— can reveal about Spanish culture.
In Albuquerque the panel includes author Margaret Randall, author Ignacio Martinez de Pisón (Spain), and translator Anne McLean, moderated by Susana Rivera on October 4th at 6pm at the National Hispanic Cultural Center (Salon Ortega)
Spain’s Great Untranslated (Words Without Borders March 2013 issue) features works by Spanish authors Juan Eduardo Zúñiga, Cristina Fernández Cubas, Miquel de Palol, Pedro Zarraluki, Fernando Aramburu, Ignacio Martínez de Pisón, Berta Vías Mahou, Antonio Gamoneda, Tono Masoliver, Pere Gimferrer, Olvido García Valdés, and César Antonio Molina.
