The School of European Languages, Culture and Society has teamed up with the AHRC, Poet in the City, Europe House and Bloomsbury Hotel to provide an exciting programme of events in London starting in the spring and lasting until the autumn. Seven poets from Peru, Hungary, Holland, France, Germany, the Faroe Islands and Italy, will be coming to London to read their poetry, SELCS staff and RAs will be translating their poems into English, and the poetry along with the translations will be published in a special commemorative volume.

The Hungarian Cultural Centre is delighted to support Krisztina Tóth, one of the most highly acclaimed Hungarian poets who will represent Hungary in this special programme holding a unique reading evening at Europe House. She will be in discussion with one of the translators of her work: Professor Daniel Abondolo.

Her poetry deals in an emphatic, reflected and sometimes ironic way with everyday scenes and conflicts. In 2003, her first children's book London Bear appeared. Her debut novel Barcode was published in German in 2010. The fifteen short stories bring up childhood, love and travelling during the Kádár-era from a very feminine perspective. Krisztina Tóth received numerous prizes such as the József Attila Prize (2000), Sándor Márai Prize (2007), Apart from writing she designs and produces stained glass windows.
