Asymptote’s Global Celebration in Philly!


We are happy to be joining Asymptote as a bookseller for their 3rd Anniversary Celebration on March 29th, 630pm-9pm.  PRE-ORDER FEATURED BOOKS. 

The event, hosted by Interviews Editor Matt Jakubowski, will feature a vocal performance by the Philadelphia Women’s Slavic Ensemble and readings by award-winning translator Vincent Kling (Schlegel-Tieck Prize), author Katherine Hill (The Violet Hour), author Ken Kalfus (Equilateral), and author Hilary Plum (They Dragged Them Through the Streets).

Asymptote is an exciting new international journal dedicated to literary translation and bringing together in one place the best in contemporary writing. We are interested in encounters between languages and the consequences of these encounters. Though a translation may never fully replicate the original in effect (thus our name, “asymptote”: the dotted line on a graph that a mathematical function may tend towards but never reach), it is in itself an act of creation.
