Aulò: Ribka Sibhatu and André Naffis-Sahely in conversation with The Poetry Library

Manchester Poetry Library and the Poetry Translation Centre are delighted to celebrate the publication of Aulò: Selected Poems and Fables.


Join online on 23rd July 7-8pm.


Poet Ribka Sibhatu and translator André Naffis-Sahely have worked closely together for over 10 years, translating her poetry to bring it to the attention of English speaking audiences. Manchester Poetry Library and the Poetry Translation Centre are delighted to celebrate the publication of Aulò: Selected Poems and Fables with a special reading and a wider discussion about Italian and Eritrean poetry with both poet and translator. Sibhatu writes in Tigrinya and Italian, and her poetry reflects on the immigrant experience in Europe. Her 2009 collection Aulò offers a remarkable personal achievement in giving lyric expression to the Eritrean oral poetic tradition.
