Invisible Storytellers: the remarkable role of translators in British Children's Literature

Thursday 5 July, 1pm
Djanogly Theatre

Free, advanced booking recommended

Cinderella, Pinocchio and the remarkable role of translators in the history of British Children's Literarure

When we see a child enjoy the stories of Cinderella and Pinocchio, or engrossed in an Asterix album, it is easy to forget the role of a translator in producing English versions of these tales. Gillian Lathey, Senior Honorary Research Fellow at the University of Roehampton London, will introduce some of these invisible storytellers and pay homage to their neglected craft.

On sale week commencing Monday 5 February
