About The Event

In time of calamity and social distress, it was often the writers who were called to imagine how the world would heal its wounds and begin again. Inspired by the creative examples of the past, we have summoned an extraordinary ensemble of authors and translators and challenged them to picture by way of prose and poetry how life re-emerging from the black silence of the pandemic may look like. We continue the series, created together with the National Museum of Romanian Literature, with polygraph writer, influential cultural journalist and president of the International Literature Festival of Timișoara (FILTM) ROBERT ȘERBAN, translated by American academic, translator, and poet ANDREW K. DAVIDSON, a son of Phoenix, Arizona living in Bucharest. 

Watch the video on our FACEBOOK, YOUTUBE and WEBSITE from Tuesday, June 16, 2 p.m. EDT (or anytime later).
