Past & Present: Annette von Droste-Hülshoff
If you’re looking to discover new favourite poets or to learn about writers you thought you knew from surprising angles, then our Past & Present sessions are the thing for you. For today’s event we’re partnering up with the Berlin-based event series and podcast, The Dead Ladies Show, who celebrate women who were fabulous when they were alive. In this special Dead Ladies Show/Past & Present crossover, writer and Droste expert Anneke Lubkowitz talks about the prolific Annette von Droste-Hülshoff, a nineteenth-century German poet, composer and literary loner who once graced the 20 Deutschmark note.
Join us for a live show on Zoom, which will be recorded to create an upcoming Dead Ladies Show podcast! By attending, you're consenting to your audio being recorded for the podcast, so make sure you have your best applause at the ready. If you're able to watch the event in a quiet room and using a headset, that'd be ideal.
Due to the recording, we'll remove the Zoom link after the introductions, so please do arrive on time!
