London Book Fair
It’s that time again – time for the London Book Fair. While it’s mostly a trade event, and not the book paradise bibliophiles might imagine, it is certainly worth going to. For the second year in a room, there will be a translation center, with talks on translation offered every day. Besides those events, I also like the cooking demonstrations (as I am an avid cook myself) and the display of cookbooks from all over the world, plus I enjoy meeting fellow translators as well as editors from publishing companies who publish translated literature. Hope to see some of you there!
Originally from Chicago, I lived in southern Sweden for nearly 5.5 years, and moved to southern Wales in September 2006. I completed a Ph.D. translation studies in June 2009 at Swansea University, with a dissertation on the translation of children's literature.
Now I live in Norwich, England, where I am a lecturer at the University of East Anglia, and I also work as a translator, writer, and editor.
