Virtual Event by City of Asylum

Eulalia Books is a Pittsburgh-based independent publisher of literary translations. They publish work that has never before appeared in English translation, with a special emphasis on work from Latin America. Katabasis, translated by Olivia Lott, is their newest publication. It is the first poetry collection written by a Colombian woman to be translated to English and was named by Pen America as one of the top 5 works in translation in 2020. In this program Olivia will read from Katabasis and be joined in conversation by Michelle Gil-Monterro, Executive Director of Eulalia Book as they discuss discovering the Katabasis manuscript in a street market in Colombia, as well as Michelle’s experiences starting a small, independent translation press in Pittsburgh.
