World Poets Series: Poets from the Baltics

12 April, 2018 @ 8:00 pm - 9:30 pm

Join us for this one-off event with visiting Baltic poets. The evening will showcase three of the most celebrated poets from the Baltic states, Maarja Kangro (Estonia), Kārlis Vērdiņš (Latvia) and Tomas Venclova (Lithuania). The poets will read from their work and then discuss the poetry scene in their respective countries with a Q and A that will open up to the audience. The event will be hosted by Clare Pollard, UK poet and editor of Modern Poetry in Translation. In recent years the National Poetry Library has hosted readings from poets from South Korea, Mexico, Syria and Poland. This year the focus is on Baltic poetry in this special event in partnership with the British Council and Modern Poetry in Translation, celebrating the Baltic focus of this year’s London Book Fair.
