Did you know that not all the books in our library were originally written in English?
In Western cultures, translated works are often advertised as though originally written in English, ignoring translators’ incredibly detailed and devoted work.
So in the name of those forgotten authors, here are several works available at the Russell Memorial Library that have been translated into English.
The Housekeeper and the Professor by Yoko Ogawa translated from Japanese by Stephen Snyder
She is an astute young Housekeeper, with a ten-year-old son, who is hired to care for him.
And every morning, as the Professor and the Housekeeper are introduced to each other anew, a strange and beautiful relationship blossoms between them.
