Join author Selim Özdoğan with his translators Ayça Türkoğlu and Katy Derbyshire for an evening of reading and conversation all about their newly published book, 52 Factory Lane.
Selim Özdoğan’s beautifully melancholy Anatolian Blues trilogy unfurls a woman’s whole life between Turkey and Germany. Gül moves to a new country and learn all kinds of longing: for her two daughters, for her father the blacksmith, for scents and colours and fruit. Yet imperceptibly, Factory Lane becomes a new kind of home.
Turkey, Germany, the UK: what makes a place a home – and how can we write and translate it? How does a writer turn family anecdotes into a moving novel? How can two translators work on one book? Find out more at this fascinating event.
Free event, Saturday 2nd April. Arrive from 6.30pm for a 7pm start at the All Good Bookshop at 35 Turnpike Lane, N8 0EP, 020 8341 0783.
