The Center for the Art of Translation is without question one of the most impressive literary organization in the Bay Area, and recently it has been kicking things into high gear. On Wednesdays, it celebrate the launch of a new and expanded publishing arm, called Two Lines Press, with the release of not one but two titles: All My Friends by Marie NDiaye (the youngest person ever to be shortlisted for the International Booker Prize translated by Jordan Stump, and Hi, This Is Conchita by Granta “Best Young Spanish-Language Novelist” Santiago Roncagliolo (translated by Edith Grossman). Though all of the center’s events are stellar, if you haven’t been to one before this would be an excellent first; they have actors lined up to dramatize the authors’ work and $20 gets you admission and both books.
