Translating the Bible: Conversation w/Robert Alter

April 8 , 7:00 pm

Award-winning translator and literary critic Robert Alter is the author of over two dozen books including The Hebrew Bible: A Translation with Commentary. In his new book The Art of Bible Translation, Alter offers a personal account of what he learned about the art of Bible translation over the past two decades of his work. Alter provides an illuminating introduction to biblical style that also offers insights about the art of translation far beyond the Bible.

Alter will appear in conversation with Dr. Adriane Leveen, senior lecturer in Hebrew Bible at the Hebrew Union College Jewish Institute of Religion. Dr. Leveen is a trained psychotherapist and practiced for 17 years in both Israel and the United States before getting her doctorate in biblical studies.

A reception, book sale, and signing will follow the program.

Tickets: $15 general; $12 seniors; $10 CJH/Partner members, students.
