Community Event for Translators in Calgary

"Myriad Translations: Giving Stories New Life through Alternative Forms"

Featuring: Cheryl Foggo, Gilles Mossière, Fred Stenson, Gisèle Villeneuve in conversation with Susan Ouriou.


Thursday, January 24, 7-9 p.m, Rose & Crown Pub (3rd floor) , 1503 4 St SW, Calgary


Guests are welcome to arrive anytime after 6:00 p.m. to settle in, enjoy dinner and socialize. Thursdays are ½ price bottle of wine night at the Rose—Santé! We all know that great works of literature have been translated into other languages around the world, but how often do we talk about the creative process of actually giving these works new life through translation, or of adapting fiction or nonfiction for the stage, screen or short film? Join us for an intimate conversation around creativity, vision, adaptation—and how the essence, intent and magic of our narratives can be interpreted through myriad translations.

This panel discussion is presented by the Writers Guild of Alberta (WGA) and the Literary Translators’ Association of Canada (LTAC) with additional support from RAFA (Regroupement Artistique Francophone de L’Alberta)
