March 19, 2015 Two Voices Salon with Ann Goldstein and Michael Reynolds

Join us on Thursday, March 19, to discuss the work of Elena Ferrante with two people who know her work very well: her English language translator and publisher.

Michael Reynolds, publisher of Europa Editions, and Ann Goldstein, literary translator and New Yorker editor, join us via Skype to talk about one of the hottest authors in translation.

The author writing as Elena Ferrante has become big news lately, as the first three books in her Neapolitan series have earned rave reviews—including from James Wood, The New York Times, National Public Radio, Vogue, and many others. Readers "have discovered in Ferrante a writer who speaks with great power and beauty of the mysteries of belonging, human relationships, love, family, and friendship."

As always, we’ll begin the conversation with the latest and greatest in translation—please come prepared to let us know what you’ve been reading!
