14 February 2018 Jan Wagner and Matthew Sweeney 
Room: D1049, Time: 5:30pm
Acclaimed Irish poet Matthew Sweeney and prize winning German poet Jan Wagner (Preis der Leipziger Buchmesse 2015 and Georg-Büchner-Preis 2017) will visit UL to read from Sweeney’s newest collection of poems which was translated into German by Wagner and published as Hund und Mond (Dog and Moon). The book was chosen as ‘Buch des Monats’ (Book of the month) by the Darmstädter Jury and has been praised for its surreal approach to everyday life.
