A Book of Interest: Colette: her name conjures up words like glittering, sensuous, witty, whimsical. The first new work by Colette to appear in English in half a century, "Shipwrecked on a Traffic Island and Other Untranslated Gems" (SUNY Press), showcases this legendary French writer's talent by offering some of her best writing. Renée Morel is a CCSF French instructor and one of the co-translators of this collection. Co-translators Zack Rogow and Renée Morel will present Colette's book and Terri Holt, who frequently appears with the Berkeley Rep, the Aurora Theater and other Bay area stages, will read excerpts. For more information and an image of the book, please see attached Colette Book Flier.pdf.
