Venue: Europe House, 32 Smith Square, London, SW1P 3EU
We are delighted to invite you join us this year at Europe House on Friday 20 November 2015, at one of our two free translation workshops which are running simultaneously from 17:00-18:00 (registration from 16:30), and at our reception afterwards at 18:30.
You can choose to attend:
Workshop (1) with award-winning poet, novelist and translator Kevin Crossley-Holland; writer, editor and translator Daniel Hahn; and young award-winning translator Joshua James in a workshop of translation from Anglo-Saxon centring on Kevin’s The Exeter Book Riddles,
Workshop (2) with renowned children's author and poet Michael Rosen; and Modern Poetry in Translation (MPT) editor Sasha Dugdale; and other panellists (tbc) for a session on world poetry for children. They will read poems from Taiwan, Polish, Russian, Mexican, Eritrean and Dutch and discuss how these poems can enrich children’s early experiences of literature, and how teachers and parents can introduce poetry themselves so it endures in their children’s and students’ lives.
All are welcome to join us after, at 18:30, for a glass of wine and to listen to Michael Rosen give an introductory speech about the Children's Bookshow.
Tickets are free, but booking is essential. Please contact Suzanne Westbrook on firstname.lastname@example.org to reserve your place.
