Brody Lit Night – Dóra Elekes

We're back! Join us for our first HLO Brody Studios Lit Night of 2018 with children's author Dóra Elekes. We'll be in conversation with Dóra, winner of the Children's Book of the Year Award 2017, on Tuesday 6th February from 8 pm at Brody Studios.

Each month, we bring you readings and discussions with a range of contemporary Hungarian authors, poets, and translators in a warm atmosphere, tailored to an English-speaking audience. Our guests this year included György Dragomán, Ádám Nádasdy, Péter Závada, David Szalay, Zsófia Bán, Benedek Totth and Dénes Krusovszky. Held on the first Tuesday of each month, each Lit Night features a discussion, readings of our guests' work in English, and plenty of scope for contributions from the audience.

The next event will be at 8 p. m. on Tuesday 6 February at Brody Studios


Dóra Elekes

Dóra is an award-winning children's author. Her book Mother and the Ginns broaches the difficult topic of growing up with an alcoholic parent, and was chosen a "White Raven" by the International Jugendbibliothek, while her next book Of Betty and Other Gods, won the Children's Book of the Year award in 2017. You can read more about both here.

Dóra will be in conversation with co-editor Mark Baczoni. We look forward to seeing you all there!
