Poet and UM Senior Lecturer at the Mediterranean Institute, Dr Norbert Bugeja, will be moderating a discussion on memory training during the 2020 Malta Book Festival, Virtual Edition.
He will be interviewing bestselling Israeli author, Eran Katz, who is one of the international guests at this year’s virtual book festival.
Eran Katz is the author of seven books on the power of memory and intelligence, including Five Gifts for the Mind (2016) and Jerome becomes a Genius (2009), both international bestsellers in more than ten countries. His unique books, combining suspense and self-help skills, have been translated into seventeen languages and won numerous literary prizes.
He is also the founder of Smart Memory Ltd, a company that develops memory improvement online courses for students and adults, and has delivered more than 2,000 lectures and seminars on memory and brain power to educational institutions, companies and conventions worldwide.
As an internationally widely published author, Eran Katz will also be joining other guest speakers on the public conference ‘Beyond Borders: Translation’s Power to Take Us Elsewhere' to discuss his experience with having his work disseminated in a variety of countries, and meeting readers from as many places.
‘Beyond Borders’ seeks to explore how translated works have come to increasingly provide a vital means of connecting readers and cultures across the globe. The event also features the participation of Merlin Publishers’ Director Chris Gruppetta; London-based writer and editor and co-founder of Praspar Press Katryna Storace; translator from the Maltese into Norwegian Kristina Quintano; and Maltese-Palestinian prize-winning author Walid Nabhan.
This discussion will be streamed on Thursday 12 November at 20:00.
