Our next meeting of our bilingual Spanish-English bookclub “Entre dos mundos” will be on Saturday, September 21 from 3 pm to 5 pm. We will be commenting Guadalupe Nettel’s Después del invierno, either in its original Spanish version or in its English version After the Winter translated by Rosalind Harvey. Or both! You can find a review of the book here:
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/.
