Details

Join us for our next meeting of our bilingual Spanish-English bookclub “Entre dos mundos” on Saturday, December 15 from 3 pm to 5 pm. We will be commenting Gabriela Alemán's Poso Wells, either in its original Spanish version or in its English translation by Dick Cluster. Or both!

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 http://columbiajournal.org/review-poso-wells-by-gabriela-aleman/ and https://suburbano.net/poso-wells-de-gabriela-aleman-o-un-espacio-para-reinventar-lo-latinoamericano/.

There's only a few copies of the Spanish version available in the US. So hurry up if you want to get the physical book. Alternatively, you can buy the Ebook. The English edition is easy to get.
