Squaring the Circle at Seattle Public Library

Squaring The CircleTranslators Mariano Martin Rodriguez (from the original Romanian to Spanish) and Ursula K. Le Guin (in association with MMR from Spanish to English) appeared at the Seattle Public Library to launch Aqueduct Press’ edition of Squaring the Circle: A Pseudotreatise of Urbogony, by Gheorghe Sasarman. They were accompanied by the author’s daughter Anna┬áRogasch and nephew Vlad Sasarman.

Anna read a letter from the author; Ursula, Mariano, and Vlad read “Arapabad” in, respectively, English, Spanish, and Romanian, to a transfixed audience.
