Village of Secrets by Caroline Moorehead
Le Chambon-sur-Lignon is a village of scattered houses high in the mountains of the Ardèche. Surrounded by pastures and thick forests, the plateau Vivarais lies in one of the most remote and inaccessible parts of Eastern France. During the Second World War, the inhabitants of the area saved thousands wanted by the Gestapo: resisters, freemasons, communists, downed Allied airmen and, above all, Jews. Many of these were children and babies, whose parents had been deported to the death camps in Poland. After the war, Le Chambon became the only village to be listed in its entirety in Yad Vashem's Dictionary of the Just. (Jenni_Canuck)… (more)

ROUND TABLE – Globalization + Literature: Breaking Down Barriers
International Festival of Authors, Saturday, October 25 at 11am
Three international authors discuss how the translation of their work into English has unlocked a universal audience that was unattainable in their native language. Martin Solotruk will host.

This event is part of Found in Translation, a yearly Festival focus on the art of literary translation with the goal of increasing Canadian awareness of international talent.

Jonas T. Bengtsson was born in 1976. He is the author of the critically acclaimed and prize-winning debut Amina’s Letters, which won the BG Bank First Book Award and was a finalist for the Weekendavisens Litterature Prize. His second novel, Submarino, was awarded the PO Enquist Literary Prize and was adapted into a film by Thomas Vinterberg. Bengtsson presents his third novel, A Fairy Tale, an unforgettable story about the profound love between a father and son. It was a finalist for the Danish Radio Literature Prize for Best Novel of the Year.

Andrej Blatnik is a writer of both fiction and criticism. He has also worked as a translator, translating the work of Paul Bowes, among others. Blatnik presents Law of Desire, an expansive collection of 16 stories about “urban nomads” lost in a labyrinth of pop culture.

Drago Jančar is one of Slovenia’s best-known writers at home and abroad. He is the recipient of Slovenia’s highest literary honour, the Prešeren Award, and was awarded the European Prize for Literature. Jančar presents his latest novel, The Tree with No Name. Shifting between Slovenia’s post-communist present and its wartime occupation by the Axis, it is a compelling and universally significant story of an individual confronting the constraints on truth set by his—and every—culture.

Martin Solotruk was born in Bratislava in 1970. He graduated from Comenius University, where he now teaches. Solotruk's first book of poetry, Tichévojny, won a Slovak Literary Fund award. His poems have appeared in numerous international anthologies, and he has read at festivals and events around the world. He also translates poetry from English, for which he has won several awards. Solotruk is Director of ArsPoetica International, a poetry festival and publishing house.

ROUND TABLE: Translate Yourself?
International Festival of Authors, Saturday, October 25 at 1pm
Two French authors and one translator explore the process of translation and the merits of translating your own work versus having it translated. Martha Baillie hosts and moderates.

This event is part of Found in Translation, a yearly Festival focus on the art of literary translation with the goal of increasing Canadian awareness of international talent.

Martha Baillie is the author of four novels. Her most recent, The Incident Report, was longlisted for the Scotiabank Giller Prize and was included in The Globe and Mail’s list of Best Books for 2009. She has written about contemporary visual art for the Art Gallery of Ontario, the Koffler Gallery and Brick magazine. Her poetry has appeared in several Canadian journals. Baillie presents The Search for Heinrich Schlögel. Her hypnotic new novel follows the titular character from Germany to Canada, where he sets out on a two-week hike into the isolated interior of Baffin Island.

Maylis de Kerangal is the author of several novels in French, including Je marche sous un ciel de traîne and Réparer les vivants, which won the Grand Prix RTL-Lire. She has also published a collection of short stories, Ni fleurs ni couronnes, and a novella, Tangente vers l’est. She presents her first novel to be translated into English, Birth of a Bridge (Naissance d’un pont). The winner of the Prix Franz Hessel and Prix Medicis in 2010, it is a literary saga of a dozen men and women who are charged with building a bridge somewhere in a mythical and fantastic California.

Nancy Huston is the author of 12 novels, including Fault Lines, winner of the Prix Femina and a San Francisco Chronicle Best Book of the Year; Plainsong, which won the Governor General's Literary Award for French-Language Fiction; Slow Emergencies, winner of the Prix Louis-Hémon, and The Mark of An Angel, which was awarded the Grand Prix des Lectrices de Elle. She presents Black Dance. A rich portrait of one man’s life and death, it is a novel packed with humour and pathos, and written with Huston’s signature vivacity.

Jessica Moore is an author and translator. She is a former Lannan writer in residence and winner of a PEN Translation Fund Grant for her translation of Turkana Boy, a poetic novel by Jean-François Beauchemin. Moore’s first collection of poems, Everything, now, was published in 2012. She is also a songwriter: her debut album, Beautiful in Red, was released in 2013. Moore is the English translator of French author Maylis de Kerangal’s Birth of a Bridge. She presents the book alongside its author.
