Children of history

12 April, 2018 @ 6:00 pm - 7:15 pm

How does a country’s history or identity affect its ideas of family and family life? The Baltic countries of Lithuania and Latvia have lived through some tumultuous 20th century history. Two writers from these countries, Nora Ikstena (Latvia) and Alvydas Šlepikas (Lithuania) join Carolyn Jess-Cooke to unpick the thorny connections between national history and the intimate relationship of the family.

In partnership with English PEN
