An evening of readings/discussion about contemporary translated Polish literature.

Antonia Lloyd-Jones, who has been a particularly industrious translator of Polish prose and reportage, published no fewer than nine translations since 2013. “She has made an enormous impression with the quality of her translations on the one hand, and on the other with her versatility,” remarked Grzegorz Gauden, Director of the Polish Book Institute, “In only one year, she has published a collection of stories, and a novel, a biography, reportage, and a classic work of children’s literature.”

In acknowledgment of the quality of the translator’s work, several of these titles have been nominated for various literary prizes.

The FOUND IN TRANSLATION AWARD is given annually to the translator of the best translation of Polish literature into English in the form of a book in the previous calendar year.
