Please join us for a delightful evening with Sylva Fisherova who will read from her poems and writings, following by a discussion and intellectual reflection.
Sylva Fischerová (born 1963) is one of the most formidable Czech poets of her generation. A distinguished classicist who teaches at Charles University in Prague, she writes poetry with a vivid imagination as well as an historical reach. She has published eight volumes of poetry in Czech, and her poetry has been translated and published in numerous languages. Two earlier selections of her poems in English translation were published by Bloodaxe Books. She also writes prose as well as essays and books for children.
The event is sponsored by East Central European Center, Columbia University Central and Eastern European Club, and Harriman Institute.
Refreshments will be served.
