Changing, Adjusting, Expanding: Conversation On The Art Of Translation With Author & Translator Kate Briggs

Inspired by Women In Translation Month, BC bookseller emeritus Adam Fales sat down with translator Kate Briggs to talk about how translation happens. We all know how essential translation is in a world of over 6,000 languages, but the craft, dilligence, effort and finesse that goes into a work of translation often goes unnoticed when executed seamlessly. Briggs's essay collection This Little Art offers us a peek inside the intricate, at times grueling process of translating a book. We hope you'll enjoy our conversation with her as much as we did!
