#1book140: Twitter Book Chat on International Poetry

1book140 - Susan Harris

1book140 – Susan Harris

Join readers of The Atlantic and Global Voices at 3 pm Eastern Time (9pm CEST) on Monday, October 21 for a live Twitter chat with Susan Harris (@SusanHarrisWWB), editor of The Ecco Anthology of International Poetry.

Says Rayna Stamboliyska in a post on The Atlantic:

We have already read The Ecco Anthology back in April, during the 1book140′s poetry month. Edited by Susan Harris and Ilya Kaminsky of Words Without Borders, The Ecco Anthology of International Poetry is back in the spotlight this month as we wish to revive the magic of internationally celebrated poets from the 20th century, rarely—if ever!—translated into English.

The Ecco Anthology invites us to discover and know more of the world. We, at 1book140, invite you, through The Anthology, to discover “a country of words”

Here's how to take part:

Find a copy of The Ecco Anthology of International Poetry and follow us at @1book140. We'll tweet out when the live Q&A begins, and you can send your questions with the hashtag #1book140. Susan will answer with the hashtag so everyone can follow along. After the Q&A, we'll post the answers.

Receive great stories from around the world directly in your inbox.
