An Evening with Turkish Writer Ece Temelkuran

A conversation with Ece Temelkuran, one of Turkey’s best-known novelists and political commentators and author of the novel, The Time of Mute Swans, and non-fiction work, Turkey: The Insane and the Melancholy

Temelkuran was one of the most read political columnists in Turkey until her investigative and critical journalism on Turkish government and, especially its handling of Roboski airstrike in 2011 led to her dismissal. She was a visiting fellow at Oxford and delivered the Freedom Lecture as a guest of Amnesty International and the Prince Claus Foundation. She has contributed articles to the New York Times and the Guardian. Her books have been published in 19 countries. She lives in Istanbul and Zagreb.

Books will be available for sale.
