Everyone knows that magazine lists are bullshit, with one major exception: When Granta lists writers to watch, you'd better sit up and take fucking notice, because your next favorite author is sure to be on that list. Three of Granta's Best of Young Spanish-Language Novelists—Andrés Barba, Javier Montes, and Alberto Olmos—are coming to Seattle to discuss translation, what's hot on the Spanish literary scene, and how it feels to be young and awesome and hyperintelligent. Literature in translation is the cheapest way to travel, and the best way to understand a culture. Get your Spain on tonight. (Elliott Bay Book Company, 1521 10th Ave, 624-6600, 7 pm, free)
