Description

The Merwin Conservancy proudly presents an evening with Bill Porter (aka Red Pine), a travel writer and renowned translator of Chinese literature, poetry, and sacred Buddhist and Taoist texts. Porter will appear with an inspiring presentation entitled, “The Search for Solitude: China’s Hermit Tradition,” based on his book Road to Heaven: Encounters with Chinese Hermits, which has become a best-seller in China, where it has sold a quarter of a million copies in its Chinese translation. Informed by his own Buddhist practice and travels throughout Asia, Red Pineʻs work distinctively carries a generosity of spirit that opens up these challenging texts to the English-speaking world. He has been the recipient of the PEN Translation Prize, WESTAF Award in Translation, Lucien Stryk Asian Translation Prize, and a Guggenheim Literary Fellowship.
