Literary Club Meeting in October

On October 29 at 3 pm Literary Club of National Library of Udmurt Republic is organizing a meeting with Lyudmila N. Lyakhova, translator of a series of books “The Chronicles of Narnia” and “Earthsea” by fantasy classics C. S. Lewis and U. Le Guin.

Lyudmila Nikolaevna Lyakhova - professor at the Department of Philosophy, the Faculty of Sociology and Philosophy, the Udmurt State University. Lyudmila Nikolaevna has just celebrated her 75th anniversary and 50 years of scientific activity. Translating fantasy fiction is her hobby to which she has dedicated a lot of time and effort. In the times of book deficit (the end of the last century) when it was particularly problematic to get a good worthy book, L. Lyakhova ordered writings by popular foreign authors from M. I. Rudomino All-Russia State Library for Foreign Literature (Moscow) and translated them. As a result, the series of novels “The Chronicles of Narnia” by C. S. Lewis and “Earthsea” by U. Le Guin (which Ludmila Nikolaevna initially translated for herself) were published by Izhevsk Publishing House “Quest” in the 1991-1993s, beautifully illustrated by member of Union of Russian Artists, honored art worker of the Udmurt Republic, professor of the Udmurt State University Valery Petrovich Lyubarets.


Lyudmila N. Lyakhova’s translation style is highly appreciated by readers in the Udmurt Republic, Izhevsk and by users of various fantasy-related web resources. Working on translation, Lyudmila Nikolaevna has worked out a number of guiding principles for the process which she is going to share with the audience of the Literary Club. The meeting will be attended by participants of the Republic’s Translation Contest “Translation in the Field of Multilingualism” supported by the National Library of the Udmurt Republic. Participants of the meeting will be presented with the bibliographically rare books and will have a chance to address questions to the translator.


The Club meeting will take place at the Republic’s Library for Children and Youth (Pushkinskaya St., 200).
Admission is free. All are welcome to attend.
