News | Bridging the Divide: Translation and the Art of Empathy
Thursday 30 July at 5 pm sees the launch of a ground-breaking weekly podcast, championing independent publishers, their authors and translators will feature world writers, translators and their publishers in conversation with Georgia de Chamberet and Lucy Popescu including a guest interview with the man behind Nordic Noir.
Owing to the Covid-19 pandemic, 9 of the 11 books featured have been published in Spring/Summer 2020. With our twinned podcasts and reviews, we aim to provide Media exposure and long-term visibility online, since festival appearances, launches and talks have been cancelled.
The literary podcast combined with new internet technologies and broadcasting offer a powerful means for promoting the books of authors unable to get to the UK to meet British readers. We are thrilled to be teaming up with some of the most dynamic publishers in the UK committed to translation, and their brilliant authors and translators.
