Meredith McKinney is an award-winning translator of classical and modern Japanese literature, whose translations include Sei Shônagon’s eleventh-century classic The Pillow Book, and Kokoro and Kusamakura by the early modern novelist Natsume Sôseki.
After living and teaching for around 20 years in Japan, she returned to Australia in 1998 and now lives near Braidwood. She is currently an honorary associate professor at the Japan Centre, Australian National University.
Meredith McKinney's translations are justifiably widely admired and she speaks with such knowledge and insight that anyone who can join us on the evening of Wednesday November 27th is in for a treat!
