Welcome to the first edition of the 2020 Gotham!
I started off the new year by attending an interesting translation reading sponsored by Pen+Brush, a not-for profit organization currently celebrating its 125 anniversary. Three very diverse translations of literary works written in three different languages were read.
I’d like to thank Elias David Jacob for his enjoyable look back at famous translation mistakes throughout history. As you know, the Gotham is always looking for original content. I’d like to encourage members to submit any original work on translation or interpretation for eventual publication. My email address is: firstname.lastname@example.org.
.As part of our Meet the Translator series, I am also including an interview with long-time Circle member and former officer Meg Shore, who shared details of her distinguished career with us.
Finishing up this edition are some photos from our very enjoyable Holiday Party which took place at Salaam Cafe’ in December 2019.
Wishing all our members and happy and healthy 2020!
