New World / New Words: Monica Lavin

This Saturday at the annual American Literary Translators Association Conference near Dallas, Texas, I'll be reading from my translation of a short story by a wonderful Mexican writer, Monica Lavin, for the launch of the new anthology edited by Thomas Christensen (with a forward by Gregory Rabassa), New World / New Words, the first anthology in a series published by Two Lines. (This story, "Day and Night" was first published in my anthology of 24 Mexican writers, Mexico: A Traveler's Literary Companion.)
