Toms Treibergs is both an extremely talented poet and, in his role as a broadcaster, one of the leading advocates for poetry in Latvia with TV and radio shows exploring the poetic possibilities that abound in the country. As he tells LSM, as well as fulfilling his professional duties, the London Book Fair gave him a chance to fulfill a personal wish - to meet renowned Lithuanian poet Tomas Venclova, whom he has long admired.
