Translating Taiwan: Talk and Q&A with Darryl Sterk
Fri 10 March 2017, 16:00 – 17:30 GMT
Join us for a presentation and Q&A with Darryl Sterk, a prolific translator of literature from Taiwan, whose works include the critically acclaimed The Man With The Compound Eyes 複眼人, by Wu Ming-yi 吳明益, and his latest book – Horace Ho’s 何致和 The Tree Fort on Carnation Lane 花街樹屋 (Balestier Press, 2017). Darryl also lectures in translation and interpreting at National Taiwan University.
Horace Ho is our Writing Chinese March book club pick, so you can read more about him on our Bookclub page, and read an excerpt (in English and Chinese) of his book Offshore Island Bible 外島書, also translated by Darryl.
The event is free and open to anyone. There will be refreshments, and a bookstall from Blackwells Books.
