Translator honored

The Mexican Consulate in Kansas City provided an appropriate venue. That’s where Margaret Sayers Peden, professor emerita of Spanish at the University of Missouri in Columbia, was scheduled to be honored this past Friday during a reception. The event was part of the 34th annual conference of the American Literary Translators Association, held in Kansas City last week.

Over her career Peden has translated about 65 books from Spanish to English, among them works by Isabel Allende, Carlos Fuentes and others. Last year, Peden’s translation of “Celestina,” by 15th century Spanish author Fernando de Rojas, received the 2010 Lewis Galantiere Translation Prize.

Literary gold rush: Patrick deWitt's 'Sisters Brothers' wins Gov-Gen prize | Macleans.ca - Canada - Features

Vancouver Island native Patrick deWitt says he was plagued with doubt about his comic western novel "The Sisters Brothers" when it first entered the wild world of publishing.

But that feeling is gone now that the story has struck book-prize gold, winning a $25,000 Governor General's Literary Award for fiction on Tuesday — two weeks after it landed the $25,000 Rogers Writers' Trust Fiction Prize.

"You don't really know what something is worth when you've been looking at it every day for so many months, so there are certainly periods of doubt throughout," deWitt, 36, said after taking the Governor General's honour at a Toronto news conference.

Established in 1936 by the Canadian Authors Association, the awards are said to be Canada's oldest prizes for English-language and French-language Canadian literature.

Up until 1994, when the Scotiabank Giller Prize was founded, the GG fiction award was the only honour of its kind in Canada.
