Enjoy a Latvian Poetry Evening in London

You are cordially invited to attend a poetry reading and short discussion on Thursday 1 December at the Latvian Embassy, 45 Nottingham Place, London, W1U 5LY, United Kingdom at 6:30pm.

In September 2016, Riga hosted a unique international project (Poetry Translation Workshop) in which eight poets from Latvia and Great Britain were translating each other's works. It proved to be very successful and now International Writers and Translators House of Latvia, along with the Latvian Embassy in the United Kingdom, are hosting a poetry reading of the work of Krisjanis Zelgis and Eduards Aivars.

Next year both poets will have poetry collections in English published by Parthian Books.

Welsh actor Fraser Cains will be reading the translation of their poetry. There will be a reception afterwards. 

Please RSVP to embassy.uk@mfa.gov.lv
