If you're anything like us, you always kind of enjoyed the summer reading you had to do in school. Luckily for you, we've found a way to turn "kind of" into "really" using one simple trick: set your own reading list! Here you'll find the books that our booksellers have decided to try and tackle this summer. This is strictly for participation credit, there will not be a test, we promise.
On Tuesday, April 30th we were honored to host Christie Grotheim for the launch of her novel The Year Marjorie Moore Learned to Live. Did you miss it? Christie was lovely enough to answer some questions for our blog--check it out below!
Book Culture loves the eclectic and exciting books published by university presses - that’s why we’re so excited to celebrate University Press Week! University Presses are known for publishing books that might otherwise be considered too experimental or esoteric. As a result, the roughly 14,000 books published annually by university presses are some of the most eclectic and exciting volumes on our shelves
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!
