Hebe Uhart’s The Scent of Buenos Aires a conversation with translator Maureen Shaughnessy and Eva Gasteazoro



A remarkable traveler and observer, Hebe Uhart pays close attention to the way people speak, how they move, and how they remain still. Considered to be one of the greatest contemporary Argentine writers, Uhart won the Manuel Rojas Iberian-American Award for literature in 2017. The Scent of Buenos Aires is the first collection of Uhart’s to be published in English, and Maureen Shaughnessy’s translation perfectly captures Uhart’s extraordinary world, one dappled with iridescent ivy and the small epiphanies of ordinary souls.

At this event at Word Up, Maureen will be in conversation with fellow translator Eva Gasteazoro, a writer and performance artist, translator, and teacher, originally from Nicaragua.
