The Next Bridge is El Puente
For the first time ever, the Bridge Series, which presents readings by and conversations between translators in NYC, will be hosting an author/translator/editor trio. Come hear Argentine author Sergio Chejfec read from and talk about his novel My Two Worlds with translator Margaret Carson and the book's editor, E.J. Van Lanen of Open Letter Books. Chejfec, who has published numerous books (novels, poetry, essays) teaches in the Creative Writing in Spanish program at NYU. My Two Worlds is his first book to be translated into English.
