Featuring Michelle Steinbeck and Michael Fehr, two of the most exciting writers on the Swiss literary scene and winners of major national literary awards. This special evening, part of the Literally Swiss event series, will be followed by wine, music and of course, Swiss chocolate.
Michelle Steinbeck and Michael Fehr are unforgettable wordsmiths and performers, feted across Switzerland as champions of live performance and outstanding writing – musical, hypnotic, surreal, widely published. They will read from their sensational works – in both English and German, as they appear here in London together for the first time, Michelle to launch her first novel in English and Michael to launch his Artistic Residency in London.
They will also discuss the challenges and adventures of translating their daring and innovative language with their renowned translators Jen Calleja and Shaun Whiteside. The evening will be hosted by Rosie Goldsmith.
