Saint Vincent College will host literary translator, Katherine Hedeen, as the first reader in its Visiting Writers Series for the fall semester at 5 p.m. Monday, Nov. 13, in the Luparello Lecture Hall in the Sis and Herman Dupré Science Pavilion on the campus of Saint Vincent College. Admission is free and open to the public.

Hedeen’s latest book-length translations include night badly written (Action Books), tasks (coimpress, longlisted for the Best Translated Book Award, shortlisted for the National Translation Award, 2017) by Víctor Rodríguez Núñez and Nothing Out of This World, an anthology of contemporary Cuban poetry (Smokestack, Winner, English PEN Award). She is the poetry translation editor for the Kenyon Review and a two-time recipient of NEA Translation Project Grant. She is a professor of Spanish at Kenyon College.

The Visiting Writers Series has brought many writers of merit to Saint Vincent ever since its founding in 2008, including Daniel Borzutzky, Ben Lerner, Carmen Gimenez Smith and Rick Hilles. The series presents writers from a diverse number of locations from western Pennsylvania and beyond.
