Wind and Wood

Students, staff, and members of the public are cordially invited to the launching of Prof. Mayne’s collection Wind and Wood– his 75th published book– recently published in a four-language edition in South America.

This is also a unique University of Ottawa collaborative project: Prof. Mayne is a veteran full-time professor at the University for almost fifty years. Among the translators who rendered his word sonnets into French, Portuguese and Spanish are Prof. Marc Charron and Véronique Lessard of our School of Translation and Interpretation. (Prof. Charron serves presently as Vice-Dean in the Faculty of Arts).

Seymour Mayne will be joined by Prof. Laura Spoturno, the editor and Spanish co-translator of the book along with Prof. Marc Charron and Véronique Lessard of our School of Translation and Interpretation who rendered the French versions of the word sonnets

The launching will take place on Thursday, September 19, from 4:30 – 6:00 p.m. in Room 114, Visual Arts Building, 100 Laurier Ave East. Free and open to the public. Refreshments to follow presentations.
