Zweig in London

2 May 4:00 pm - 5:00 pm

Online Talk

The London Library, in partnership with Insiders/Outsiders, will be hosting Zweig in London, with Daria Santini (author of The Exiles, which explores the lives of the artists, actors and writers who fled the Nazis for London in 1934), Philippe Sands and George Prochnik. When novelist, playwright, journalist and biographer Stefan Zweig arrived in London in 1934, exiled from his native Vienna by the rising tide of Nazism, he was at the height of his literary career. London wasn’t quite home but he came to love its ‘murky light’, its ‘particular atmosphere’ and, most significantly, he loved its libraries. Woven through with readings of some of the letters Zweig wrote from London, they will discuss his life and work, his years of displacement in the city and the particular condition of what it means to be a writer in exile.
