Please join Danielle Legros Georges on Tuesday, July 12, at 7:00 PM EST, for a “Conversation on Literary Translation.” This event is meant as an introduction to (or refresher on) literary translation for writers. We will explore the fundamental questions of translation—which are ultimately the enduring and complicated questions of language, writing, and art in general. (You need not know or have studied a foreign language to engage in the conversation). There will be a power point presentation with some fascinating questions for the group to discuss.

Bio: Danielle Legros Georges is the author of poetry collections including The Dear Remote Nearness of You (Barrow Street Press, 2016), winner of the New England Poetry Club’s 2016 Sheila Margaret Motton Book Prize; and Island Heart (Subpress Books, 2021), translations of the poems of the Haitian-French poet Ida Faubert. Her recent awards include fellowships and grants from the Massachusetts Museum of Modern Art, the Massachusetts Cultural Council, and the PEN/Heim Translation Fund. In 2014, she was named Boston’s Poet Laureate, and served in the role until 2020, collaborating with Boston-area museums, libraries, students and artists; and representing Boston nationally and internationally. She is the creative editor of sx salon, a digital forum for explorations of Caribbean literature; a contributing editor to the literary journal Salamander; and a professor of creative writing at Lesley University.
