Come and enjoy the book launch of Piaf & Brel. Luisterryk!, a collection of Afrikaans translations of 53 of Édith Piaf and Jacques Brel’s most famous chansons, on Wednesday the 27th of September at 18:00 in Jannie’s Reading Room. Bernard Odendaal, an Afrikaans poet, who over the past two decades has worked with the French professor, Naòmi Morgan, on poetic translations, will give the audience insight into the process that led to this publication. Photo material and sound recordings from cabaret shows and CDs that have already resulted from the translation project will accompany the volume launch. Copies of the volume, as published by Imprimatvr, will be available for cash purchases.
