The Eric Carle Museum, Special Storytime

April 30 @ 10:00 am - 11:30 am

While we can use books to travel to other places without leaving home, books themselves can also travel thanks to translators. Come find out what happens when a book leaves its home language and moves into another. This special storytime, facilitated by UMass students in the Practicing Literary Translation course, aims to cultivate an awareness of literary translation.  This program is offered in conjunction with the annual celebration of Día. Also known as El día de los niños/El día de los libros (Children’s Day/Book Day), Día is a nationally recognized initiative committed to linking children and their families to diverse books, languages and cultures. 

Free with Museum Admission
