In keeping with this year’s theme "Love and Money," Festival Neue Literatur presents "For the Love of Translation," featuring New York's celebrated literary editors and translators.

If you've ever wondered how your favorite book-from-abroad arrived at your local bookstore, join us for a snapshot into this fascinating journey. Publishing international literature in translation is a unique world unto itself. With only 3% of U.S. books being translations, "For the Love of Translations" highlights stories of championing international literature, directly from the people who have made it happen.

Featured editors and translators will discuss a memorable literary translation. Their discussion will not only recount the critical decisions of their editing coordination, but will demystify their collaboration process.

Join us as our featured panelists detail the lifecycle of publishing international literature from initial discovery to print - and everything in between from nailing the perfect title to debates over (un)translatable words!
