March 19, 2020, 7:15 p.m. - 9:00 p.m.
Effective, Saturday, March 14, all library sponsored programs are canceled through March 31, 2020, as a precautionary measure to help stem the potential spread of COVID-19. Library branches that are serving as early polling locations will continue this service until we are instructed otherwise by the Elections Board. DCPL will continue to monitor the situation to see if further cancelations are warranted. The Georgia Center for the Book will help keep you updated as we move forward, as well. Monika Zgustova is an award-winning author (Amat Piniella Award for the best novel of the year, Gratias Agit, and The City of Barcelona awards among others) whose works (six novels, a volume of short stories, two plays, a biography and a dictionary) have been translated into nine languages. She was born in Prague. In the 1970s and 1980s, she studied comparative literature in the United States at the University of Illinois and the University of Chicago. She then moved to Barcelona, where she writes for El Pais and La Vanguardia. As a translator of Czech and Russian literature into Spanish and Catalan–-including the writing of Havel, Kundera, Hrabal, Hasek, Dostoevsky, Akhmatova, Tsvetaeva, and Babel–-Zgustova is credited with bringing major twentieth-century writers into Spain.
