Webinar: Freedom For Varavara Rao (Sep 29)


Join Irish PEN, Scottish PEN and guests as we share poetry readings and updates on the case of renowned Indian poet, Varavara Rao.

Wed 29 Sept. 7pm

This free event will provide an overview of Rao’s remarkable life and include readings of poetry he has produced over his decades-long career. We will also provide an update on Rao’s case, and share information about the ways that attendees can demonstrate their support.
The event will be chaired by Professor Ignatius McGovern and will feature a rare opportunity to hear from Rao’s nephew, Venugopal Nellutla, who published ‘The Making of Varavara Rao: An Intimate Portrait by a Nephew’ in 2020. The event will also include poetry and prose readings from Professor Bashabi Fraser, Leela Soma, June Considine and Kate Ennals.
