Aritha Van Herk – “After the War – The Secret Survival of Gavrilo Princip” – April 10th at Bank Street Arts Centre, Sheffield


As part of her Yorkshire tour for the YNCS, Sheffield Hallam have invited internationally renowned Aritha Van Herk to speak for them. Aritha will be reading from her latest book, “After the War – The Secret Survival of Gavrilo Princip”. Gavrilo Princip (1895-1918) was a Serbian nationalist who became the catalyst for World War I when he assassinated Austrian Archduke Franz Ferdinand in Sarajevo on June 28, 1914. The murder started a chain reaction that led to the beginning of the war only one month later.

Everybody is welcome to this public event. Bank Street Arts Centre is a contemporary and dynamic space that is home to all kinds of creative work, so it’s fitting that a writer well-known for her diversity will be speaking here. Aritha is renowned for her fictional, non-fictional and critical work, so this is a great chance to see an international speaker at an intimate venue. There will be an opportunity to ask questions after the reading so, whatever your interests, do come along.
