Book Club: R.F. Kuang's Babel

Please join us on December 1st to discuss R.F. Kuang’s newest novel, Babel: Or the Necessity of Violence: An Arcane History of the Oxford Translator’s Revolution.

Bring your thoughts, questions, and feelings about this book to our discussion. We’ll talk about colonialism and “empire,” the power dynamics of translation, language as a tool and history, what you think of the characters (especially Robin, Ramy, Victoire, and Letty), how you felt about the ending, and more!

This event is open to all in the content community.

RSVP at the link below.

Process note: This session is part of a series of monthly meetups that Steyer hosts. Some of these meetups are limited to Steyer employees only; some are open to the public. The idea is simply to spend a bit of time together exchanging stories and ideas—to get to know one another better and to learn from one another.
