Writer and literary critic Jorge Carrion will discuss his extended essay Bookshops. He will be joined by the academic and literary translator Lilit Thwaites to open up a dialogue about authors, readers and the limits and possibilities of translation.

Catalan-Spanish writer and academic Jorge Carrión is most famous in English for his recent book, Bookshops. He’ll join Melbourne-based academic and translator Lilit Thwaites to open up a fascinating dialogue about authors, translators and readers.

The pair will discuss Spanish literature, politics, translation and, of course, Carrión’s greatest love: bookshops.

What are the greatest misconceptions about the translation process? And, for authors, what does seeing your own books in translation teach you about language, its limits and its possibilities?
