Need Something To Do Thursday?

Why is it that words sound so darn pretty in a different language? While that's not true for every language (sorry, Germans), someone speaking a romance language can say something appalling or profane and it sounds downright musical.

Forrest Gander's words would sound beautiful in any language. The poet/novelist/translator will read today at Rediscovered Bookshop as part of the Carried Across: A Celebration of Translation tour around Boise/Nampa, presented in conjunction with the Mexican Consulate.

You can catch Gander's bilingual reading of his first novel, As a Friend, at 5 p.m. Can't make it? He'll be at the Boise State Student Union Building Lookout Room at 7:30 p.m., and at Ontario's Four Rivers Cultural Center and Museum at noon Friday, March 16.
