Jessica Cohen, translator for Israeli author David Grossman and co-winner of the 2017 Man Booker International Prize, joins us in conversation with Bonnie Ellinger, Ph.D. Applied Linguistics. Ms. Cohen will speak not only about the challenges of translating one language to another, but translating imagery and humor across cultures. Cohen shared the Man Booker Prize with Grossman for his book A HORSE WALKS INTO A BAR. It’s a talk not to be missed.
Santa Fe resident Bonnie Ellinger is no stranger to the complexities of translation from Hebrew to English. She taught English at Israel’s Bar Ilan University for over twenty years, and has taught Hebrew in Santa Fe for many years.
