Jennifer Croft: Finding the Words

Guggenheim Fellow and Booker International Prize-winning translator Jennifer Croft explores the relationship between translation and empathy in her new memoir, Homesick. It’s a tale of two sisters: Zoe, who falls seriously ill, and Amy, who strives to protect her. Fascinated by etymology, Amy finds a way to cope by immersing herself in networks of words and the powerful connections they offer. We welcome one of the most accomplished translators working today in conversation with Daniel Hahn.

Jennifer Croft is appearing remotely.
