Welcome to listen Athena Farrokhzad talk about her authorship!

Athena Farrokhzad is a Swedish poet, literary critic, playwright, and translator. In 2013, she made her debut with ‘Vitsvit’ and has since authored a series of books. Her latest work, ‘Åsnans år,’ published in 2022, delves into themes such as death, diaspora, and motherhood from the perspective of a donkey.

Elvira Niemi and Vera Arhippainen, both literature students at Nordica, will lead the conversation with Athena Farrokhzad.

The discussion is open to everyone, and you do not need to have read the author’s books to participate. We will be serving coffee.

Warmly welcome to Nordic Culture Point at Kaisaniemenkatu 9!
