George Szirtes: the Dual Perspective of an Exile

28 April 2020 6:30 pm - 8:30 pm

The Wiener Holocaust Library, London



The prize-winning poet and translator will talk about his experience as a member of the Second Generation, his parent’s background in the camps, coming to the UK as a refugee from Hungary in 1956 and the creative process. His talk will be illustrated by readings from his most recent publications Mapping the Delta (2016, PBS Choice for poetry), and The Photographer at Sixteen (2019, a prose memoir of his mother), winner of East Anglian Book award for Biography and Memoir, currently long-listed for the Wingate Prize and one of the TLS’s Books of the Year.

There is no need to book, but it would be helpful to have an idea of numbers. If you would like to attend, please email David Wirth
