Join us for our next meeting of our bilingual Spanish-English book club “Entre dos mundos” on Saturday, May 15th from 3 pm to 5 pm.
We will be commenting Patricio Pron's El espíritu de mis padres sigue subiendo en la lluvia in its original Spanish version or in its English version My Fathers' Ghost is Climbing in the Rain translated by Mara Faye Lethem. 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.
For more information on this Bookclub's original idea and the previous books discussed in New York City, where it originally initiated and still runs as well, you can visit: https://clubdelecturanyc.wordpress.com/.
Happy bilingual reading and see you soon!
