Next Meetup

Entre dos Mundos: Spanish-English Bilingual Book club - 5th. meeting
Join us for our next meeting of our bilingual Spanish-English bookclub “Entre dos mundos” on Saturday, November 17 at 3 pm. We will be commenting Juan Pablo Villalobos' Te vendo un perro, either in its original Spanish version or in its English translation by Rosalind Harvey, I'll Sell You a Dog. This is the fun thing about this book club! It’s totally up to you: you can choose to read the book either in Spanish or in its English translation, or in both! During the meeting, we will have bilingual discussions on different aspects of the book, including topics that are interesting to translators, such as the linguistic, stylistic and cultural choices made in translation. You can find descriptions and reviews about the book here: https://elpais.com/cultura/2015/04/01/babelia/1427907306_814035.html https://www.theguardian.com/books/2016/oct/29/ill-sell-you-a-dog-by-juan-pablo-villalobos-review This book can be purchased at Green Apple Books and online at Barnes & Noble, Amazon or The Book Depository. Remember to check with your local book store or library! They might have it or order it for you. This Book Club started in New York City November 2017, and since July it now runs simultaneously in New York and in San Francisco. For more information on the original idea and the previous books discussed in New York City, you can visit: https://clubdelecturanyc.wordpress.com/. Happy bilingual reading and see you soon!
