Deep Vellum Publishing is proud to be in good company as one of the nonprofit partners for the inaugural Dallas Festival of Ideas. We will have a table in the Winspear Opera House from 9am-6pm on Saturday selling books (Boullosa & Pitol) & subscriptions and playing some fun translation games with the audience to open up the public’s understanding of how literary translation works. Join us, it’s free to come hang out in the Winspear.
