As part of the Borderless Books x Gŵyl Haf International Translation Day Festival, we’re happy to be supporting Sinoist Books in presenting a conversation with award-winning Chinese to English translator Nicky Harman and her collaborator Jun Liu as they describe their process in co-translating Jia Pingwa’s Sojourn Teahouse (soon to be published by Sinoist Books). Nicky will also compare this to the process of solo-translating Jia’s Broken Wings.

This event will take place from 9-10am, but by booking a (free!) ticket here you’ll also be able to attend various events throughout the day, presented by independent UK publishers (Fitzcarraldo Editions, Peirene Press, V&Q and Sinoist Books) and all spotlighting the work of translators, in partnership with English PEN and the National Centre for Writing.
