An Ode to Storytelling: Translating The Book of Pearl

Join Walker Books, publishers of Alex Rider, Michael Rosen and Helen Oxenbury, as they present the imaginative adventure story The Book of Pearl. Hear internationally acclaimed author, Timothée de Fombelle, in conversation with his translators Sarah Ardizzone and Sam Gordon about his journey in creating the story, and theirs in bringing it to life in English. This event will be chaired by Joy Court.

Ahead of the event, you can also read an extract from The Book of Pearl by clicking here.

This event is part of Wanderlust: Great Literature from Around the World, a monthly event series at Free Word. Join us on the second Monday of each month to celebrate the best fiction in translation.

FWC record each Wanderlust so that if you can’t make an event, you can catch up and enjoy the conversation via an online audio recording. These recordings are available on FWC’s Soundcloud and also on their blog within a week or two of the live event at Free Word Centre.

Presented By: Walker Books in partnership with Free Word
