The Bridge: On North African literature: Pierre Joris & André Naffis-Sahely

Wednesday, April 15 at 7:00pm in EDT

McNally Jackson Books in New York, New York

Join poets and translators Pierre Joris and André Naffis-Sahely to hear their translations of noted North African writers, from the Prix Goncourt-winning Moroccan author Abdellatif Laâbi to the Algerian poet, essayist, and ethnologist Habib Tengour. Joris and Naffis-Sahely will discuss the multilingual nature of the region and its literature–and how to convey this in translation–along with exile, identity, and the rich oral tradition that informs Maghrebi writing.
