An extraordinary panel of translators and writers celebrated Jenny McPhee’s new translation of Natalia Ginzburg’s novel, Family Lexicon, last Friday at Casa Italiana. The panel, composed entirely of women, was moderated by historian Ruth Ben-Ghiat, and featured Jhumpa Lahiri, Ann Goldstein, Giovanni Calvino, Lynne Sharon Schwartz, and Jenny McPhee. As a surprise guest, Natalia Ginzburg’s daughter, Alessandra Ginzburg, also joined the discussion.
Natalia Ginzburg’s stories of her family were woven throughout the panelists wonderfully collaborative and enticing discussion about the art and science of translation. Among the many ideas explored were Jhumpa Lahiri’s vivid descriptions of climbing into the basement of the novel to examine the mechanics of a writer’s language. Jenny McPhee described Ginzburg’s writing as deceptively simple in style but extraordinarily complex in meaning, using uncomplicated language to reveal layers of meaning.
Casa Italiana had a full house with an overflow room to accommodate as many guests as possible. The conversation, and the stories each woman told, to illuminate their relationship to writing, language, and to mining the depths of another’s writing when translating, were riveting. The serendipitous timing of McPhee’s translation of Lessico Famigliare was not lost on the panel, or the audience, given its relevance to our current political climate.

Join us on Friday, May 12th at 6pm for a special screening of The Price of Desire, a film about the Irish architect, furniture designer, and pioneer of the Modern Movement, Eileen Gray. The film tells the “controversial story of how Eileen Gray’s influential contribution to 20th century architecture and design was almost entirely wiped from history by the egotistical ‘Father of Modernism’ Le Corbusier, and of how her relationship with philanderer Jean Badovici (Le Corbusier’s promoter by way of his influential architectural publication L’Architecture Vivante) further fuelled the rift between the two architects, both personally and professionally, consigning her legacy to a century of neglect and long-overdue recognition.” The film was written and directed by Mary McGuckian and stars Orla Brady, Vincent Perez, Francesco Scinanna, and Alanis Morissette. The screening will be moderated by Victoria Shaw-Williamson, an appraiser specializing in fine and decorative arts and a specialist at 1stdibs, a leading online marketplace for design, art, and collectibles.
Date/Time: Friday, May 12th, 6-9pm

Erman directed Broadway actors Blair Brown (Copenhagen) and Brian Hutchinson (Man and Boy) in a reading of the classic drama, which tells the story of a post-war family who must overcome the effects of a dark family secret revealed while mourning the loss of their son—a soldier who went missing in action during the war.
