On Tuesday, 13 October, NYU Berlin is hosting a reading and discussion with Tal Nitzán, award winning poet, writer, editor and a major translator of Hispanic literature. Nitzán is the author of five poetry books and one children’s book, and editor of three poetry anthologies. She has resided in Buenos Aires, Bogotá and New York. Currently she lives in Tel Aviv. Her poems have been translated into more than twenty languages; her collection of poetry “Zu Deiner Frage“ will be published by Verlagshaus Berlin for the Frankfurt Book Fair 2015.
The event is co-organised with NYU Bronfman Global and the Ernst Ludwig Ehrlich foundation (ELES), which sponsors Jewish students and PhD candidates at German universities. ELES CEO Jo Frank, familiar to NYU Berlin students from the journalist panel in August, will host the seminar. Jo Frank will also talk with Tal Nitzán about contemporary life in Israel and her political activism.
