Watkins to discuss Goll’s translation

Written by 

Jackson County writer (author of the heralded travel memoir East Toward Dawn) and translator Nan Watkins will be giving a reading and discussion of Yvan Goll’s Dreamweed as part of the “Coffee with the Poet” series at 10:30 a.m. Oct. 18 at City Lights Bookstore in Sylva and 3:30 p.m. Oct. 20 at Blue Ridge Books in Waynesville.

This is Goll’s great last work, masterfully translated and brought to life in modern English by Watkins, who will present a conversation on the art of translation and process of translating. Formatted as a roundtable discussion, this reading/discussion gives the audience a special opportunity to delve into the work along with the translator, considering questions and contemplating this collection of poems.

Harper, with her million-dollar smile and swagger, immediately made me feel at home.
