Janet Frame Event in Istanbul

This event will take place on the 19th March 2012 at Koç University in Istanbul.

Here is the notice (in Turkish): Janet Frame

The organisers mention the relevance and proximity of the event to International Women's Day (March 8th) which reminds me that a special tribute to Janet Frame appeared last year in the special UNESCO Courier (April-June 2011) celebration of heroic and inspiring women.

Janet Frame's posthumous novel Bir Başka Yaza Doğru (Towards Another Summer) has recently been published in Turkey by Yapi Kredi, following the publication of Baykuşlar Öterken (Owls Do Cry) 2010.
