A Night with Margaret Jull Costa

Book Club of California | 312 Sutter Street | San Francisco, CA

This event has already taken place.

Join us on Monday, August 13 at 7:00 pm for a rare opportunity to see legendary translator Margaret Jull Costa discuss her work with Nobel laureate Jose Saramago. It all happens at the beautiful Book Club of California, where you’ll sip good wine and Speakeasy beer and be surrounded by a library full of books.

Costa is the acclaimed translator of literary giants from Spanish and Portuguese, including Jose Saramago, Javier Marias, Bernardo Atxaga, and Eça de Queirós. Here she provides unique insight into Jose Saramago’s distinctive body of work, gleaned from her decades of close scrutiny while translating this master’s novels.

A reception will follow with cash bar and plenty of conversation with fellow bibliophiles, all within the beautiful confines of the Book Club of San Francisco, home to thousands of books and exhibitions on literary culture.
