New Literature from Europe 2014 - Crossing Borders: Europe Through the Lens of Time



New Literature from Europe 2014 - Crossing Borders: Europe Through the Lens of Time

at the Austrian Cultural Forum New York

Join us for a celebration of the most exciting voices in European Literature today, guided by some of America’s top writers and critics. Come on a European journey through the lens of time that takes us on a murder mystery in France, to Italy on the brink of collapse during the end of the Second World War, to a love story in Germany, and asylum in Austria. Artistic decisions turn to a matter of life and death in the Czech Republic and survival skills are pushed to the limit in Poland’s Warsaw Ghetto. Go back in time to life in a Hungarian village, and visit Bulgaria in the aftermath of the collapse of communism, before ending our journey in Romania, during the reign of a totalitarian regime. Friday night will feature a keynote by Barbara Epler, publisher at Seven Stories Press. Saturday’s panels will be moderated by renowned American writers Lorraine Adams, Ian Burumba, and Siri Hustvedt. This year the festival is also pleased to host the prize-giving ceremony for the annual Polish Government Found in Translation Award, for best translation of Polish literature into English in the previous year. This year’s winner is Philip Boehm, for his translation of Chasing the King of Hearts by Hanna Krall (Peirene Press, 2013). Friday, Dec 5 Multilingual Readings and keynote Julia Deck, Davide Longo, Nicol Ljubić, Susanne Scholl, János Háy, Georgi Tenev, Lucian Dan Teodorovici, Magdaléna Platzová and Philip Boehm Keynote: Barbara Epler 8:00 pm – 9:30 pm Welcome Cocktail Reception 9:30 pm – 11:00 pm
