Verso will be launching The Letters of Rosa Luxemburg in Swedenborg Hall, following the 140th anniversary of Rosa Luxemburg's birth on March 5th. This first comprehensive collection of letters is a prelude to a series of new translations of The Complete Works of Rosa Luxemburg. Translated in partnership with the Rosa Luxemburg Foundation in Germany, the letters cover Luxemburg's political and intellectual life and activities, right up to her tragic death in 1919.
The Swedenborg Society hosts a panel discussion with chair Susie Orbach, award-winning playwright David Edgar, editor Dr Lea Haro and writer and historian Lesley Chamberlain, with readings by Dame Harriet Walter.
Made possible with the support of the Rosa Luxemburg Stiftung.
