On Saturday, September 8, Wild Detectives Bookstore is hosting a Hay Festival – Bogotá 39 in Dallas, an event the Center for Translation Studies is helping to sponsor. The Hay Festival is a literary and arts festival that began in Wales in the late 1980s and has expanded to include sister festivals all over the world. Bogotá39 refers to a select list (compiled every 10 years) of 39 promising Latin American authors who are all under the age of 39.

In association with that event, the Center for Translation Studies will host two Mexican authors from the 2017 Bogotá 39 list—Eduardo Rabasa and Daniel Saldaña—along with their translator Christina MacSweeney, and Dallas’s own Will Evans, founder of Deep Vellum publishing who published MacSweeney’s translation of Rabasa’s Zero Sum Game. This event will be held on Monday, September 10 @ 7 pm.
