Velkom to Inklandt
15 February 6:00 pm
Poems in my grandmother’s Inklisch
Brixton-based artist and poet Sophie Herxheimer will talk about and read extracts from her very successful volume Velkom to Inklandt: Poems in my grandmother’s Inklisch originally published by Short Books in 2017. Described in The Guardian as “uplifting, funny, heart-breaking – a one-off”, the collection, featuring Herxheimer’s own illustrations, comprises a series of dramatic monologues in the voice of her German-Jewish grandmother, which are best read out loud. A new edition of the book is to be published in January. Sophie is currently working on a song cycle based on her family’s history with her cousin, composer James Rolfe.
Booking details will follow soon.
