Passageways East Bay Launch Party
Mrs. Dalloway’s | 2904 College Avenue | Berkeley, CA
This event has already taken place.
Join acclaimed Berkeley poet Camille Dungy to celebrate the newest volume of TWO LINES, titled Passageways at the lovely Berkeley bookstore Mrs. Dalloway’s. Dungy co-edited the book and here reads from Passageways with celebrated Bay Area translators.
In addition to Dungy, we will welcome Oakland-based author, translator, and previous TWO LINES contributor Carolina de Robertis. Robertis is the author of two acclaimed novels, Perla and The Invisible Mountain, as well as the translator of Roberto Ampuero’s The Neruda Case, published earlier this year by Riverhead Books.
She reads alongside San Francisco-based translator Deborah Garfinkle, who earlier this year received grants from both the National Endowment for the Arts and the PEN Foundation for her translations of the renowned Czech author Pavel Šrut.
Join us for this event and find out about the latest in the world of international writing! In addition to new literature from over 30 different countries, Passageways also has a special section on new Brazilian writing, with 9 astonishing new voices from the southern behemoth.
