SERIOUSLY NOW WITH PETRA KINDLER

Petra Kindler

Friday 22nd March 2013 – Garter Lane Waterford

As part of Waterford Writers Weekend – Free Event

Seriously Now! with Petra Kindler

Join writer Petra Kindler as she talks about her unlikely journey from being a compulsive reader in a family that valued books only as handy missiles, to becoming a literary translator of eminent authors such as Anne Enright, Sebastian Barry or Eugene McCabe. On the evening Petra will muse on a her 25-year detour through the “evil universe” of advertising while explaining how she also came to write and publish short stories, magazine articles, a children’s play and other stage material without ever considering herself a writer, sharing on the night her innermost disgust for the yawning cliché that Germans are devoid of humour, conveniently ignoring the fact that humour tends to occur in the shape of language, and reveal the awesome truth that is forever lost on the culturally complacent: humour does occur in languages other than their own – and so does literature!

Time 6.00 p.m.

All ticket enquires to Garter Lane Box Office 051-855 038
