Literary Events

11 Nov

The New York Literary Translation Festival is next week, November 16-18. It will feature readings by Romanian and American writers, translation workshops, panel discussions on translation and publishing, and a closing night party with Romanian gypsy music at the Cornelia Street Cafe. I hope to get out to one or two events.

In other news, I went to the launch party for Collectanea’s third issue, which has NYC theme. Highlights of the reading included ruminations on Norman Mailer’s obituary, insane uncles, and Lou Gehrig. The issue should be online sometime soon, and will feature a documentary film short that I believe has some psychogeographic NY-theme. I’m looking forward to it.
