Wolff Translator’s Prize Winner Isabel Fargo Cole: Unearthing Wolfgang Hilbig

June 24, 2018 @ 6:00 pm - 8:00 pm UTC+0

Goethe-Institut San Francisco | ART-Lounge | 530 Bush Street (entrance street level) | San Francisco, California

Join us for a double celebration at the Goethe-Institut San Francisco! We will toast Berlin-based translator Isabel Fargo Cole, winner of this year’s Helen & Kurt Wolff Prize for her translation of Wolfgang Hilbig’s Old Rendering Plant, and the recent publication of The Tidings of the Trees. Cole will discuss the translator as discoverer, the challenges of recreating the experience of language, and the artistic intimacy one cultivates by translating multiple works by the same writer with editor and critic Joseph Schreiber.
