Russian author Mikhail Shishkin at the Hotel Rex

The Center on the Art of Translation hosts a discussion with noted Russian author Mikhail Shishkin and Marian Schwartz, the translator of his latest book Maidenhair. I'm not familiar with Shishkin's work but I'm always interested in Russian literature and in the challenges of translation.

Tickets are $10 in advance, $15 at the door. You must buy your own ticket.

Event starts at 7:00 at the Hotel Rex on 562 Sutter St in SF.  I'll be there at 6:45, look for a meetup sign on my seat.

"Awarded numerous prizes in Russia and acclaimed as a masterpiece, Mikhail Shishkin's Maidenhair has been compared to Ulysses for its intricate plot and exuberant prose.
In this event we welcome the acclaimed, multi-award-winning Russian author and his remarkable wordsmith of a translator, Marian Schwartz, who has translated Russian literature for over 20 years, including classic works, like Ivan Goncharov's Oblomov and Mikhail Bulgakov's White Guard, and contemporary greats, like Andrei Gelasimov and Olga Slavnikova.
They'll be in conversation with the Center's Scott Esposito for a delightful exploration of Russian literature, from Tolstoy and Chekhov up to the latest, amazing work."

I decided to start Reno Motorcycle Riders Group because I wanted to be part of a group of people who enjoyed my passion... I was excited and nervous. Our group has grown by leaps and bounds. I never thought it would be this big.
