Edmund de Waal library of exile

Over the coming weeks, PEN Transmissions, in collaboration with the British Museum and Edmund de Waal, is publishing a series of essays on the theme of exile. This series speaks to de Waal’s library of exile, currently housed at the Museum. In this interview to introduce the series, de Waal speaks to Hannah Trevarthen (English PEN’s Events and Partnerships Manager) about the installation.
