Date: Wednesday the 5th of August
In celebration of Women in Translation month over August, the HerStories English Language book club will be reading Argentinian author Gabriela Cabezón Cámara’s The Adventures of China Iron.
In a unique reformulation of history and literary tradition, Gabriela Cabezón Cámara, with humour and sophistication, re-writes Martín Fierro – an epic Argentinian poem – from a feminist, LGBT, postcolonial point of view. The book charts the adventures of China Iron, Martín Fierros abandoned wife, in her travels across the pampas and deep into indigineous territories in a wagon with her new-found friend and lover, Liz.
You don’t need to finish the book – or even like it! Just join us on a Zoom call (details to be shared shortly) for some fun, friendly book-chat with like-minded people.
