She will also read from On Translation and Table-Making, an essay on Robinson Crusoe and the practice of translation.
Kate Briggs most recently published Small Hand (a paper-size poem) in Convolution, and has new writing forthcoming in Amodern (in a special issue on reading the illegible) and L’Esprit Créateur (on practicing with Roland Barthes).
