In this episode Kate Griffin talks to Indonesian writer and nationally renowned singer Reda Gaudiamo about the step-by-step process of translating her latest children’s book Na Willa into English, as well as turning well-loved Indonesian poems into songs for children.
Reda stayed in the writer’s cottage on the Dragon Hall campus throughout March 2019 as part of a writing residency. While she was in Norwich, Reda visited local schools and led a special family event at the Norfolk & Norwich Millennium Library. Her residency was in partnership with the British Council as part of the Indonesia Market Focus at The London Book Fair 2019. You can find out more about residencies here.
