Translating Haruki Murakami: A Conversation with Jay Rubin and Ted Goossen,
hosted by Carolyn Nakagawa
Saturday, 2:30pm — 3:15pm, Firehall Arts Centre

Haruki Murakami has enjoyed a worldwide appeal unmatched by any other Japanese writer: his work has been translated into more than fifty languages. What is it about his work that resonates with such a multilingual audience, and what continues to stymie the translators who make it all possible? Join us for a conversation with two of his transla- tors, Jay Rubin and Ted Goossen, to discuss the challenges and discoveries of bringing Murakami’s work to an English-speaking audience.

This event will be ASL interpreted.
