The European Division, in partnership with the Embassy of Slovenia, presents Michael Biggins discussing his most recent translation, Lojze Kovačič’s Newcomers.

Newcomers (Prišleki, in Slovenian) is often regarded as one of the most important Slovenian novels of the 20th century, and has been translated into several languages. It provides an intricate vision of how groups and societies descend into tribalism, and of how individuals resist. Michael Biggins has translated over 15 book-length literary works, and has been awarded the Janko Lavrin Diploma of the Society of Slovene Literary Translators.
Location: Pickford Theater (3rd floor, James Madison Building)
Metro stop: Capitol South
Free and open to the public.
Please allow time to clear security.
Request ADA accommodations five business days in advance at (202) 707-6362 (Voice/TTY) or email [email protected]
