Edmund de Waal British Museum library of exile 015

This panel discussion celebrates the role of translation in breaking down barriers. Chaired by Associate Editor (Culture) for the Guardian and English PEN Trustee, Claire Armitstead, it features Syrian translator and author of The Frightened Ones, Dima Wannous; Chinese-born British poet and author of Red Dust, Ma Jian; and his translator and interpreter, Flora Drew.

This is one of four thought-provoking events in a series exploring the themes inspired by the library of exile, presented in collaboration with its creator Edmund de Waal and English PEN
