Visit us at the Bay Area Book Festival!
The Center for the Art of Translation is proud to be one of the sponsors of the 2016 Bay Area Book Festival, June 4 & 5 in downtown Berkeley.
WIth more than 120 literary readings and events with 280 authors--including plenty of family events--plus a film and literature screening series in collaboration with the Berkeley Art Museum and Pacific Film Archive (BAMPFA), we're expecting more than last year's 50,000 people.
We're excited to have been involved in bringing many international authors to the festival. Center Executive Director Michael Holtmann will be moderating two panel discussions!
Don't miss "Confronting the Past: Time and Memory in Contemporary Fiction", with Jean-Philippe Blongel, Pedro Carmon-Alvarez, Jonas Karlsson and Kjersti Annesdatter Skomsvold on Saturday June 4 at 11:30 am, and "The Art of Translation" panel on Sunday, June 5 at 11:45 am, featuring translators Katrina Dodson, Amara Lakhous, Jung Young-Moon, and Idra Novey. Check out the full festival schedule.

Center for the Art of Translation at the SF Silent Film Festival
We're thrilled to be sponsoring screenings of two classic French silent films at this year's San Francisco Silent Film Festival.
Edward Gauvin (translator of The Deep Sea Diver's Syndrome and others) masterfully translated the intertitles for René Clair's The Italian Straw Hat (Un chapeau du paille italien) and Les Deux Timides.
Live musical accompaniment by the Mont Alto Motion Picture Orchestra
