Juan Kruz Igerabide: Untying Knots

The 10th annual Writer in the Translators' Workshop was held in the fall of 2013, organized by EIZIE with the support of Etxepare Basque Institute. The writer and translators gathered on September 26 and 27 and spent the two days working on the selected texts at the Carlos Santamaria Center on the San Sebastian-Donostia campus of the University of the Basque Country. On International Translators' Day, September 30, they presented their work to the public at the Koldo Mitxelena Culture Center in San Sebastian-Donostia. There was also a second presentation on October 5 in Wrocław, Poland.
