Chattarji kicked off the event by reading Elizabeth Grech’s poem ‘Autumn‘, translated into English by Albert Gatt, while Grima declaimed the original verses in Maltese (‘Il-Ħarifa‘). The conversation then focused on the Maltese language, the birth of Maltese literature two hundred years ago and Maltese poetry today.
