Anna Woltz: Talking to Alaska

Recommended for ages 11+

Dutch writer Anna Woltz has written twenty-five books which have been translated into twenty-three languages and won many prizes and fans world-wide.

With Daniel Hahn, Anna talks about her novel Talking to Alaska, a powerful story of two unlikely friends, each coping with something extraordinary, who are brought together by the love of a dog.

Originally written in Dutch, young people anywhere in the world will easily empathise with the two troubled characters. To give an insight into how an author and a translator work together to publish a book in a different language, David Colmer translator of Anna’s next book joins the conversation.
