Saint Jordi USA at the Jersey City Theater Center

April 18, 2022 - April 24, 2022

Join us this week, through the end of this weekend, at the Saint Jordi USA festival at the Jersey City Theater Center!

Among the interlocutors are two Archipelago Books translators! Bruna Dantas Lobato, translator of Moldy Strawberries by Caio Fernando Abreu, spoke on April 19 with Rick Moody about writing queerness, translating style, and her translation of Abreu. Their conversation will be available to watch online starting at 2 pm on Friday. Philip Roughton will give a talk at 4pm on Friday titled “This Demanding Potato in Human Form”, discussing his translation of Halldór Laxness’s Salka Valka

There are many other wonderful events planned at the festival over the next few days, including conversations, presentations, art installations, readings, and more! Many of these will be available online as well as in person, so please check them out virtually if you’re not in the tri-state area. You can get tickets to the various in-person events here. We hope to see you there!
