An Evening with Panos Karnezis

“Karnezis’ writing has intensity and directness, as he takes on the relationships between humans and their gods." (The Times)

Join us on Sunday 21st October for an evening with London-based Greek writer Panos Karnezis. In a talk that includes a reading from his latest work, Panos will discuss his books, including his latest novel, "We Are Made of Earth", inspired by the refugee crisis, to be published in September 2019, and share his thoughts on Britain’s imminent departure from the EU and its effect on foreign writers living and working there.

Panos Karnezis was born in Greece in 1967 and came to England in 1992. He studied engineering and worked in industry, then studied for an MA in Creative Writing at the University of East Anglia.
His first book, Little Infamies (2002) is a collection of connected short stories set in one nameless Greek village, and his second book, The Maze (2004), is a novel set in Anatolia in 1922. It was shortlisted for the 2004 Whitbread First Novel Award. Short stories by Panos Karnezis have been broadcast by BBC Radio 4 and have appeared in Granta, New Writing 11, Prospect, and Areté.

Entrance free.
