Penzance Litfest presents Ian R Chamberlain and Virginia Griem.
Ian R. Chamberlain and Virginia Griem talk about their collaboration for Not Forgotten/Nicht Vergessen. A vivid mix of tragedy, historical fact and romantic resilience still echoes from a shipwreck off the Isles of Scilly in 1875, a disaster known in Germany as the ‘Victorian Titanic’. Ian’s poems retelling that story are compellingly crafted and rich with insights of the time. Virginia will discuss and demonstrate the process of illustrating them.
