Talk with Fiston Mujila Sept 25
Avishek Ganguly, Assistant Professor and RISD Fellow, will be talking all things translation and more with prize-winning Congolese author Fiston Mujila and his English translator Roland Glasser this Friday (Sep 25) evening (5.30) at the French American School of Rhode Island (FASRI), a few blocks away from RISD.
Mujila's genre-blending debut novel Tram 83, winner of a French Voices 2014 Grant, was published in English just this month by Deep Vellum Press in Dallas, Texas. He is currently attending the Brooklyn Book Festival and participating in events at Harvard and Boston Universities, and, unbelievably, at FASRI in Providence!
The conversation will be conducted in English.
