Found in Translation brings together published translators working in the three most common non-English languages spoken in Flushing—Spanish, Chinese, and Korean—to lead a workshop on the poetry translation process with members of the public.

Participants will NOT need to know the original language. We will use the information provided by the translators to make a version that stands on its own as a poem in English. In this way, participants will confront the cultural, aesthetic, and ethical questions that translators face when bringing the literature of one language into another. A facilitated discussion will follow the group workshop.

This events celebrates the diverse cultures in Queens and the fact that Lewis H. Latimer taught immigrants ESL classes at the Henry Street Settlement during his retirement.

Please RSVP on Eventbrite.
