In June, the topic of the Nordic Literary Salon is going to be Finland’s Swedish children’s literature. The guest is the translator from Swedish Martin Severýn, and he is going to present his translation of the book The Secret Life of Farts by Malin Klingenberg. Simultaneously, a new Moomin book translated to Czech is going to be introduced. Written originally by Tove Jansson, Who Will Comfort Toffle? has been translated by Martin Severýn in cooperation with Czech poet Radek Malý.
The debate is going to be streamed on our Facebook page on Thursday June 10, 2021 from 8 pm. The recordings are afterwards available on our Youtube channel, too.
Free admission, no reservation needed.
The partner of the event are the Czech translators of the North – an organisation uniting the translators from the Nordic languages in the Czech Republic.
The event is a part of a year-long project of the Scandinavian House: “Nordic literature in the heart of Europe 2021”, which has been supported by Prague municipality and the Ministry of Culture of the Czech Republic.
