About the event

In celebration of the contribution of translation to the UK’s reading culture, join award-winning translator Daniel Hahn in conversation with authors Yan Ge (China), Juan Pablo Villalobos (Mexico) and translator Sophie Hughes, whose work (The Remainder by Alia Trabucco Zerán) was recently shortlisted for the 2019 Man Booker International Prize.


Since its launch in 2012, PEN Translates (the English PEN scheme to promote translation for books from other languages into English), has supported 250 titles. Amongst the authors it has brought us are widely recognised award-winners such as Alain Mabanckou, Han Kang and José Eduardo Agualusa.
