Green oasis in the city - literary discussion

2022. June 25. 18:00 – 19:00

Program in Hungarian

Contemporary writers who have lived in the city for decades talk about how they have created their own green oasis, their own garden, in urban conditions, and how this shapes their perception and sense of life.

Barbara Rózsássy, poet, editor of the online literary magazine Olvasat, secretary of the Hungarian Writers' Association; her latest book of poems, Legenda, was published by Orpheusz Publishing. Living in a 'village' garden on the outskirts of the city, she strives for sustainability and harmony with the creatures she cares for or adopts, keeping in mind the message of one of her favourite readings: 'you have become responsible once and for all for what you have tamed'.

Zsuzsa Mirtse writer, poet, editor
