Revolutionary Europe at EIBF
August 27, 2009
On Sunday at 4.30pm, a unique quartet of international poets will be appearing at the Edinburgh International Book Festival to showcase new work created under the presiding spirit of Robert Burns. They’ll have made the journey from Crear, where they’ve been workshopping together all week, and they are Scotland’s Donny O’Rourke, from Germany, Michael Augustin and Sujata Bhatt, Ioana Ieronim from Romania and Wojciech Bonowicz from Poland. Robyn’s been with them all week, and if her reports from the north are anything to go by, this event, marking the 20th anniversary of the fall of the Berlin Wall, should be marvellous. Naturally, we will report back if you can’t be there! Hope you’ve all been having a poetry-tastic festival. A few more days to cram stuff in, hurray!
