Part of: Georgian Poets Tour Glasgow Women’s Library - Poetry with Salome Benidze and Helen Mort
Glasgow Women's Library
Salome Benidze is a poet from Georgia. She has written two collections, as well as a best-selling novel.
Salome will share a brand-new chapbook of poems, I Wanted to Tell You, written in Georgian with English translations by the brilliant British poet Helen Mort (Division Street; No Map Could Show Them) and bridge translator Natalia Bukia-Peters.
The two poets will talk about their work, exploring the fascinating things that happen when you carry poems from one language to another.
All welcome and no knowledge of Georgian required!
