Ribka Sibhatu: Activism Through Poetry - English PEN Members Online Event

To mark the publication of Ribka Sibhatu’s Aulò! Aulò! Aulò! English PEN members are invited to join a conversation with the author and her translator André Naffis-Sahely to discuss her poetry and activism for refugees in Europe, the migrant crisis and against the regime of her home.

As an activist as well as a poet her work offers an insight into the extraordinary vulnerability of refugees and migrant workers and beyond writing she has worked across a spectrum of activism from community groups right to lobbying parliament. Writing in Tigrinya, Ahmaric and Italian, her passion for these stories is infectious and captivating.

If you are not a PEN member but would like to attend the event, you can join English PEN here.

Ribka Sibhatu's events have been supported by the European Union's Creative Europe culture programme.
