Deep Dive into Poetry: Kaarina Valoaalto’s Banana Split

Welcome to a poetry discussion! The deep dive focuses on one work of poetry, Banana Split by Kaarina Valoaalto, published this spring. Valoaalto will be interviewed by Vesa Rantama, editor-in-chief of Nuori Voima magazine.

Banana Split marks the return of an experienced author to the field of fiction. The collection of poems incorporates prose and a full-fledged literary life with feeling. In her view of the world, Valoaalto is able to move seamlessly from grassroots to cosmic perspectives.

The conversation will be in Finnish.

The safe number of participants for the event will be announced in August.

In collaboration with Oodi
