The Midtown Scholar Bookstore is thrilled to welcome renowned translator Mark Harman to Harrisburg for a panel discussion and signing on his new work of translation, Selected Stories by Franz Kafka. Harman will be in conversation with local university professors Kerry Wallach and Scott Lerner.

Selected Stories presents new, exquisite renderings of short works by one of the indisputable masters of the form. Award-winning translator and scholar Mark Harman (Professor Emeritus of German and English at Elizabethtown College) offers the most sensitive English rendering yet of Franz Kafka’s unique German prose—terse, witty, laden with ambiguities and double meanings. Harman, Wallach, and Lerner will discuss Kafka’s life, work, literary influence, and his enduring legacy.

This event is free and open to the public. To enter the signing line, books must be purchased from the Midtown Scholar Bookstore. Copies of the book will be available for purchase at the event, or you may pre-order a copy of the book for pickup/shipment. Pre-ordered books may not be signed until after the event.
