Two Japanese Translators to Speak at the Bridge Series
The Bridge Series just turned one year old (happy birthday!), and by way of celebration, it will be presenting two outstanding translators from the Japanese this coming Monday: Ted Goossen and Michael Emmerich. You may know them as the voices of Haruki Murakami (Goossen) and Banana Yoshimoto (Emmerich), but both of them have translated a large range of authors from the contemporary to classics of Japanese literature (Mishima for Goossen, Kawabata for Emmerich) and are highly knowledgable in the field of Japanese literature.
The Bridge Series is NYC’s foremost source of readings and conversations with literary translators. This month’s Bridge will be held at its usual venue:McNally Jackson Books at 52 Prince Street in Soho.
