Poeting at Waterstones: Poetry in translation

Friday 2nd June 19:00 at Oxford

To celebrate Oxford Translation Day, Waterstones is delighted to welcome international voices for Poetry in Translation.
Our regular host, Dan Holloway, and this month's guest, Adriana X. Jacobs, will discuss the importance and subtleties of literature in translation.
 
An open mic will follow - this month with a special multilingual set up recorded by Language Landscapes.
Be it Finnish, Chinese or Lithuanian, we are looking forward to hearing as many languages as you can bring!

Join us for an incredibly rich cultural night that elegantly ushers in Oxford Translation Day!

Dan Holloway is an award winning poet, writer, publisher, commentator, event organiser and promoter. He contributes regularly to the Guardian Books Blog and runs a spoken word show The New Libertines.
 
Adriana X. Jacobs is an associate professor of modern Hebrew literature at the University of Oxford, where she specializes on contemporary Israeli poetry and translation. Her translations of Hebrew poetry have appeared in various print and online venues, including Zeek, Metamorphoses, Truck, Poetry International, Gulf Coast and MQR.

Poeting at Waterstones is run in conjunction with Oxford University Poetry Society.
