Read the World: A Kaleidoscope of Translated Literature

Saturday, November 5, 2022 - 7:00pm
UA Poetry Center, Dorothy Rubel Room, 1508 E. Helen St.

Listen in as the ALTA Emerging Translator Mentorship Program cohorts present readings of literature translated into English from around the world! The program pairs emerging translators with an established translator to work together on a book-length literary translation over the course of nine months, providing the next generation of translators of world literature with support and community as they hone their craft. These 14 mentees translate collectively from 10 different languages in multiple genres, sharing a wealth of writers, languages, and stories with a broad readership.

This is a featured event at ALTA45, the American Literary Translators Association’s 45th annual program, and is part of the Arizona Translates!
