Alumna of Languages Department, Elizabeth Ann Julia, will read from her book translation

The launch of Elizabeth Ann Julian's translation of L'Habitation Saint-Ybars will take place at the Library Atrium on Tuesday, January 26th 2016, from 4:00-6:00pm. Beth, who earned her B.A. in English and French from Lebanon Valley College in 2009 and her M.A. in American Studies (Literature) in 2011, will read in the original French and from the translation. The event is co-presented by the English and Languages Departments.


Set in 19th-century New Orleans, Saint-Ybars explores the politics of race, gender, and language in a story that still resonates today. Our protagonist Pelasge arrives as an outsider to the Saint-Ybars plantation. As the years pass, the family experiences a series of personal misfortunes, but it's the larger picture that makes the story most tragic: the political, social, and racial tensions that ultimately culminated in the Civil War. The novel walks the reader through several pivotal decades in American history, weaving one family's hardships with our nation's most significant tragedy.
