November 8: Join Us for a Special VIP Reception with Steven T. Murray, Translator of Stieg Larsson!

Don't miss the fall's most exciting translation event! At this exclusive reception in the beautiful Book Club of California, chat with special guests Steven T. Murray and Tiina Nunnally about translation, their long careers in the field, the differences in translating from various languages, the Stieg Larsson phenomenon (and controversy), and much more.

This special after-hours event will follow Murray and Nunnally's Center-sponsored appearance at the Commonwealth Club, where they will be interviewed by Sedge Thomson, host of West Coast Live. It will be your chance to see the translators in person and mingle with other Nordic crime literature lovers.

The couple have been producing award-winning translations since 1984, including books by Henning Mankell, Peter Høeg, Camilla Läckberg, and Mari Jungstedt. Murray is the translator of the Stieg Larsson Millennium Trilogy, and Tiina is known for translating another runaway bestseller (from the Danish), Smilla’s Sense of Snow.

This November 8 VIP reception starts at 7:30 pm., at The Book Club of California, 312 Sutter Street, Suite 500, with tickets costing $110 each. Each ticket includes a free pass to the live interview at the Commonwealth Club. Proceeds from this fundraiser will go to benefit the Center's programs in publishing, events, and student education.
