Watkins to discuss Goll’s translation

Written by 

Jackson County writer (author of the heralded travel memoir East Toward Dawn) and translator Nan Watkins will be giving a reading and discussion of Yvan Goll’s Dreamweed as part of the “Coffee with the Poet” series at 10:30 a.m. Oct. 18 at City Lights Bookstore in Sylva and 3:30 p.m. Oct. 20 at Blue Ridge Books in Waynesville.

This is Goll’s great last work, masterfully translated and brought to life in modern English by Watkins, who will present a conversation on the art of translation and process of translating. Formatted as a roundtable discussion, this reading/discussion gives the audience a special opportunity to delve into the work along with the translator, considering questions and contemplating this collection of poems.

    That was the question constantly asked to me when friends and curious folks alike found out I was interviewing Kevin Costner. Yes, that Kevin Costner. You see the Academy Award-winning actor/director fronts a country/blues band called Modern West. They’ll be performing at the Smoky Mountain Center for the Performing Arts in Franklin on April 24.
