OCCT Discussion Group: Helen Mitsios: “Contemporary Greek Fiction in Translation — New Greek Voices: The Best Short Fiction from Greece”

Join Helen Mitsios in a presentation on her latest anthology in English translation, New Greek Voices: The Best Short Fiction from Greece, a lasting portrait of this generation’s most prominent current fiction writers in Greece. She will be discussing the process of creating and editing these anthologies, her publishing experience in the U.S., and the inherent joys and difficulties of bringing literature into English translation. In addition, she will share her publishing journey which began with a deep interest in Japanese culture and literature that led her to ask Haruki Murakami for his first short story to be published in English translation.
