Event Details

On the evening of January 27, in the heart of downtown San Francisco, Two Voices invites you to enjoy free Catalan tapas and a conversation about Josep Pla, “the most celebrated Catalan writer of his generation,” between two renowned translators: Peter Bush and the Bay Area’s own Katherine Silver.

Bush has translated dozens of books from Catalan, Spanish, and Portuguese, including work by Quim Monzo and Juan Carlos Onetti. His translation of Pla’s Bitter Life is forthcoming from Archipelago Books in April 2015. Katherine Silver is an award-winning translator and director of the Banff International Literary Translation Centre. Her translation of Martín Adán’s The Cardboard House was a runner-up for the PEN Translation Award in 2013. She has brought into English some of the most important contemporary Spanish-language literature, including authors César Aira and Horacio Castellanos Moya, Martin Adán, Marcos Giralt Torrente, and many others.
