Christian Safe House Fundraiser and Talk

Join AWC to celebrate International Women's Day with a meet and greet evening with local author, Mogens Pedersen of En Dag Mere (One Day More) who is also an expert on sexual trafficking with a focus on Denmark. Mogens has been featured on CNN, lectures at universities and has advised USA advisory council on human trafficking.

Mogens has more than an academic knowledge on this topic: he is the founder of Christian Safe House a local Danish refuge which offers shelter and legal advice to women (and sometimes men) caught in the vicious web of forced prostitution. There will be an opportunity for a Q&A session.

When:          Friday, March 8 at 18:00

A light supper will be served.
All profits from the evening will be donated to Christian Safe House
RSVP:         To awcbazaar@gmail.com    Space is limited

Book Launch by AWC Member, Heather Spears

AWC member and Danish-Canadian poet and artist Heather Spears has published several award-winning books in English in her homeland, but although living in Denmark since the 1960s, she has not yet released anything in Danish. This is now set right with a collection of selected poems Jeg kan stadig tegne  ("I can still draw"), translated into Danish by Niels Hav.

The author and translator will present and read at the launch and reception where the book can be purchased with an introduction discount.

When:          Friday, March 15 at 16.30.
Where:         Det Poetisk Bureaus BookStore, Møllegade 23!, kld. Nørrebro

Heather says:
“This is to announce my first book in Danish, translated by Niels Hav, an internationally published poet with translations of his work worldwide - in Canada with BookThug. We are friends and have been translating each other and holding readings together off and on. About three years ago he suggested a book and the above-mentioned book is the result of our cooperation. DET POETISKE BUREAU is a basement book-store/cafe/publishing-house/readings venue in Nørrebro, an area of old Copenhagen hosting many thriving cultural events - and with of course plenty of hygge.
