Five go to France …and are translated back again
The Centre for Book Cultures and Publishing (CBCP) presents an online panel event with the editor and translator to mark the publication of Hachette’s new Famous Five graphic novel series.
- Alexandra Antscherl (Editorial Director, Enid Blyton Entertainment and Fiction Brands at Hachette Children’s Group)
- Emma D. Page (Translator, PhD student at the Centre for Book Cultures and Publishing, University of Reading)
Chair: Sophie Heywood (Centre for Book Cultures and Publishing, University of Reading)
The panel will explore the new Famous Five series retold as graphic novels for the first time ever. The series translates back into English the French adaptation of Blyton’s novels by Béja and Nataël, a talented father-and-son team of graphic novel experts. Together the speakers will discuss the French and English books, the translation process, and publishing Blyton in the 21st century. This will be followed by a Q&A.
