A CELEBRATION OF "NEWCOMERS", WITH MICHAEL BIGGINS & GABRIEL SANDERS
Newcomers, the first volume of Lojze Kovačič’s three-part autobiography, opens in 1938 with the expulsion of the Kovačič family from their Swiss home and their eventual resettlement in Slovenia. Kovačič, writing as a 10-year old, describes his family’s journey with uncanny naiveté and in a style that is clear, direct and moving. Translator Michael Biggins and Gabriel Sanders join us to celebrate the first English-language publication of this pivotal Slovenian epic. Co-hosted by Archipelago Books.
