London launch on 11 December for Baltic Belles

Dedalus invites you to the launch of Baltic Belles: The Dedalus Book of Estonian Women’s Literature edited by Elle-Mari Talivee at 18.30 on Wednesday 11 December 2019 at the Embassy of Estonia, 44 Queen's Gate Terrace, London,SW7 5PJ There will be a discussion, music and mulled wine.

Rosie Goldsmith chairs a discussion between Eeva Park, Elle-Mari Talivee and Jason Finch on the role played by women in Estonian literature, and how women went from struggling to be heard to shaping and dominating the publishing agenda. There will be music by Kathy Sommer (bowed lyra and violin)

Baltic Belles comprises of texts by most significant Estonian female authors such as Betti Alver, Viivi Luik, Maarja Kangro, Maimu Berg, Eeva Park and many others. They represent the best of Estonian fiction, handling social topics sharply and suggestively, scrutinising the country’s soul in a highly personal manner.

Speakers:
Eeva Park (b 1950) made her debut as a poet, but has since published four collections of short stories. Her needle-sharp, portrait-like novellas often weave together Soviet-era memories and tribulations with those of today. Her novels have been translated into several languages and won prestigious literary prizes in Estonia.

Rosie Goldsmith was a BBC journalist for 20 years, beginning her career in the revolutionary summer of 1989 on the BBC Radio 4 programme Eurofile. Rosie is the founder and director of the European Literature Network and Chair of the Judges of the EBRD Literature Prize.

Elle-Mari Talivee, an academic and editor of the anthology.

Jason Finch, translator and academic.
