The Reading Across Borders book club focuses on literature in English translation, with a particular interest in writers who are not (yet) well-known in the English-speaking world. Hosted by store staffer Helen Chau Bradley, the book club meetings will happen every two months, and are open to all.
For our first meeting, on Wednesday, February 22, we will meet at Librairie Drawn & Quarterly (211 Bernard ouest) at 7 pm to consider Savage Theories by Pola Oloixarac, translated from the Spanish by Roy Kesey. Join us for heady discussion and refreshments!
**We offer a 15% discount on Savage Theories from now until the meeting date.**
We regret that the bookstore is not wheelchair accessible.
Savage Theories is a maximalist dazzler: it follows a disparate cast of characters, and encompasses topics and settings ranging from early 20th-century psychological theory, to Argentina's Dirty War, to 21st-century Buenos Aires' underground party scenes. Pola Oloixarac is an Argentinian writer and essayist currently based in San Francisco. Savage Theories is her first novel to appear in English.
