Meetings with authors and their translators in secondary schools

Young people are our future – our future readers and authors, and our up-and-coming translators.

These tandem readings give the students a greater feel for what happens between languages, and for what happens to texts and authors that/who are translated. A close look at the craft, examining and using language, as well as the discussion that arises as a result, are a playful way of using words and awakening a passion for literature and its languages.
