New Czech Fiction

October 17 @ 1:00 pm - 2:30 pm EDT

Czech authors Petra Hůlová and Kateřina Tučková discuss their recent novels The Movement and Gerta on Sunday, October 17 at 1 pm Eastern.

About this virtual event:

Czech authors Petra Hůlová and Kateřina Tučková discuss their recent novels The Movement and Gerta with their English-language translators Alex Zucker and Véronique Firkusny.

How do authors decide what to write about and how to write it, and how do translators (who are writers, too) reflect those decisions in their work? Join the Czech Center New York and Czech Centre London for a one-hour conversation about these questions and more, including the challenges and joys of bringing Czech fiction to English-language readers. The conversation will be followed by an audience Q&A.
