Thursday, 24 March 2020 at 7pm in Dragon Hall at the National Centre for Writing in Norwich meeting Estonian novelist, poet and musician Vahur Afanasjev, who will be the writer in residence in March as part of Centre’s residency exchange with Tartu UNESCO City of Literature.
Vahur is the author of the award-winning ‘Serafima and Bogdan’, a bloody, funny and surreal family saga about the Russian Old Believer minority in Estonia. In Norwich, Vahur will be working on his novel On the Brink of Bloom, which is set in the near future and deals with social anxiety about progress. He hopes for long walks and cycling along the River Yare, and is keen to collaborate with local musicians.
This is part of the National Centre for Writing’s Meet the World series. Meet the World events celebrate Centre’s ongoing connections with international writers and translators and will share their writing and ideas with the 21st-century audience.
