May 25, 2016 @ 7:00 PM - 9:00 PM

There’s a whole world of wonderful literature out there to enjoy. From Scandi success stories Stieg Larsson, Jo Nesbø, and Jonas Jonasson to the Japanese bestselling author Haruki Murakami, readers are devouring translated fiction from across the globe at an ever growing rate.

Publishers are always on the lookout for the next gem and are finding that the world is their oyster when it comes to acquiring fresh and exciting new stories. We will be joined by Meike Ziervogel, Publisher with Peirene Press, Patrick McGuinness, acclaimed novelist, poet, critic, translator, and Chair for this year’s Oxford-Weidenfeld Translation Prize and Nichola Smalley from And Other Stories.

Come and join us for a discussion on the rise and rise of international literature, and the very art of translation itself.

Where: The Harold Wilson Room (First Quad), Jesus College, Turl Street, OX1 3DW (The room is near the entrance and if you get a bit lost you can ask directions to the room when you arrive)
