I am a retired teacher of French Literature and Philosophy. I devote most of my time to translating works that interest me. I feel a particular commitment to making as many of Catherine Chalier's works available in English as I can. I am currently translating (and looking for a publisher for) a 500-page collaborative work of hers (with Marc Faessler) titled Judaïsme et Christianisme: l'Écoute en Partage (Cerf, 2001). I live in NYC, and can be contacted at smithster@gmail.com
