Edith Grossman is one of the most important translators of contemporary Latin American fiction.  She has translated into English the works of Nobel Laureate Mario Vargas Llosa, Nobel Laureate Gabriel García Márquez, Mayra Montero and Augusto Monterroso, among others.

Her translation of Miguel de Cervantes's Don Quijote, published in 2003, has been acclaimed as one of the finest English-language translations of this Spanish  masterpiece.

Grossman received the PEN/Ralph Manheim Medal for Translation in 2006 and the Queen Sofia Spanish Institute Translation Prize in 2010. She is currently translating Cervantes's Novelas ejemplares.

This event is made possible through the generosity of John T. Riordan, B.A. (1959) and Doctor of Humane Letters (2011).

Co-sponsors include the Center for Translating and Interpreting, Sigma Delta Pi, and Residence Life. This event is free and open to the public. Refreshments will be served.
