Brookline Brooksmith presents: Fiction in Translation with KIT SCHLUTER and EMMA RAMADAN
Brookline Booksmith hosts KIT SCHLUTER and EMMA RAMADAN as they discuss their translated works: SCHLUTER’s The King in the Golden Mask and RAMADAN’s Not One Day.
Two translators discuss two European masters, available in English for the first time. Brimming with murder, suicide, royal leprosy and medieval witchcraft, Marcel Schwob’s stories (The King in the Golden Mask) are lost horror classics from the age of Poe. French Oulipo writer, Anne Garréta’s novel (Not One Day) is an intimate, erotic, and sometimes bitter recounting of loves and lovers past, that explores the interplay between memory, fantasy, and desire.
This event is co-sponsored by Greying Ghost Press.
Pride & Prejudice: Theatre for Young Audiences Adaptation
Don’t miss Pride & Prejudice adapted by Jon Jory young audiences, from the novel by Jane Austen.
This production, directed by Courtney O’Connor, runs between December 1st and December 9th.
Finding a husband isn’t Elizabeth Bennet’s most urgent priority, but it’s difficult to escape the subject—especially once she meets the enigmatic Mr. Darcy. But in a society where subtle snubs and deceit proliferate, is it possible for Elizabeth and Darcy to look beyond his pride and her prejudice? This refreshingly fast-paced and engaging new adaptation of one of the most beloved novels of all time captures the wit and romance of Jane Austen’s writing. The story may be set in Regency-era England, but our struggles with love, money, pride, and prejudice are still ongoing today.
