About the event
Edinburgh International Book Festival 2019
Edinburgh Book Festival is back again and our first event features not only one of our authors, but also two of our translators one of whom happens to be a part of our team!
What happens to a story’s essence when it is translated from one language to another?
Hosted by Daniel Hahn, two acclaimed translators, Nichola Smalley and Saskia Vogel, will be presenting their interpretations of the same text by Lina Wolff, author of The Polyglot Lovers, who joins them in this event. Together they prove that each translation is a creative work in its own right.
No knowledge of Swedish is required to enjoy this event.
