Seminar: To Live and Die in Mexico

Carmen Boullosa, Elena Poniatowska, British writer (tbc)

Gallery Suite, Olympia

From stories of ghosts interacting with the living, to festivals remembering the dead, death is revered in Mexico. As the Nobel prize-winning Mexican writer Octavio Paz explained in Labyrinth of Solitude: “The Mexican … is familiar with death, jokes about it, caresses it, sleeps with it, celebrates it.” Join a panel of writers as they discuss how these extensive and varied beliefs in ghosts emerge in literature.

Women in Translation

Why are so of few books translated into English written by women? Why have women writers so rarely won translation prizes? Is it harder for women writers, widely read in their own countries, to find an English publisher? Following on from sessions at last year’s LTD and International Translation day we pick up the question and see if any progress is being made.

Nueva York 1613-1945, at El Museo

www.nuevayork-exhibition.org

1230 5th Ave (at 104th st)

Presented in collaboration with the New-York Historical Society, this intriguing exhibition reveals the powerful role that Latinos and Spanish-speaking countries have played over three centuries to help shape New York into the most culturally vibrant city in the world. Art works, documents, printed books, artifacts, an installation by Puerto Rican artist Antonio Martorell, and a documentary by Ric Burns all serve as testaments to this dynamic history.
