A celebration of a collaborative book in English and German of poems by Coventry peace poet Antony Owen that reinforces the links between his city and the German city of Dresden will take place in Coventry Cathedral on Saturday 6 November.

Phoenix is edited by and was the brainchild of translator Dr Rainer Barczaitis at the German-British Society of Dresden, who discovered Owen’s poetry of peace and war a few years ago, and recruited a team of translators to help bring his project to fruition. The book was launched in Dresden’s Frauenkirche in September, supported by a Dresden Choir and musicians. Antony Owen, Rainer Barczaitis and translators will read from the book in Coventry Cathedral.
