Does anybody read or write reviews?
The latest in a series of discussions dedicated to the art of translation looks at literature in translation in various media and on social networks. Book reviews have all but vanished from the daily press and are less and less common in magazines. And does anybody at all read them? Does anybody purchase books on the basis of reviews? Or is book promotion migrating from classic media to social media such as Instagram, Facebook and YouTube? What is the specific situation in this regard of literature in translation and what future does it have in a world in which there is a growing shift from paper to digital?
These questions will be discussed by: Jakub Pavlovský, bookstagrammer; Lukáš Růžička, PR Paseka publishing house; Monika Zavřelová, MF Dnes journalist and reviewer.
Moderated by Tereza Semotamová.
Organised by the Czech Literary Translators’ Guild in cooperation with the Václav Havel Library.
