Tsering Woeser – Notes on Tibet
- Where: Václav Havel Library, Ostrovní 13, Prague 110 00
- When: October 6, 2015, 19:00 – 21:00
An evening dedicated to the Tibetan poet, essayist and activist Tsering Woeser, one of the most distinctive contemporary voices commenting on and documenting current events in Tibet.
The Czech translation of her “fateful” collection of essays Notes on Tibet was carried out directly from the Chinese original. The 2003 book, which launched her journey as a dissident and independent novelist, is a highly subjective, poetic and multilayered work capturing the reality of Tibet in the second half of the 20th century.
The sinologists and translators Olga Lomová and Kamila Hladíková will host the evening.
