Her most famous novel, The Time of the Doves, has been translated into 33 languages. The event will feature a reading by Jessica Lange, directed by Joan Ollé. Before the reading, Martha Tennent and Chad Post will present Death in Spring—Mercè Rodoreda’s latest novel by  to be translated into English.
