A Celebration of Newcomers, with Michael Biggins & Gabriel Sanders
July 21, 2016, 7:00 PM
Newcomers, the first volume of Lojze Kovacic’s three-part autobiography, opens in 1938 with the expulsion of the Kovacic family from their Swiss home and their eventual resettlement in Slovenia. Kovacic, 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.
