Livonian Book Tour UK — 26-30 March: London, Cornwall, Cardiff
Join us to celebrate the publication of this very special bi-lingual collection of Livonian poetry from Valts Ernstreits. This is his first full collection of Livonian poetry in English so, thanks to Latvian Literature and Francis Boutle Publishing, we’re going on tour.
Join us for a series of bilingual events, with readings of poems in Livonian by Valts Ernstreits translated into English by Ryan Van Winkle.
A very rare chance to hear poetry in one of Europe’s most endangered languages. Livonian is spoken in Latvia by fewer than 30 people.
