In the words of Federico Fellini, “A different language is a different vision of life.” For these writers and translators, language is a way of life. They’ll dissect the art and agony of literary translation, and share how other languages have enriched and shaped their lives and work.

Dalam kata-kata Federico Fellini, “Bahasa yang berbeda adalah visi kehidupan yang berbeda.” Bagi para penulis dan penerjemah, bahasa adalah cara hidup. Mereka akan membedah seni dan penderitaan terjemahan sastra, dan berbagi bagaimana bahasa-bahasa lain telah memperkaya dan membentuk kehidupan dan pekerjaan mereka.
