Celebrate the close of the 13th New Literature from Europe Festival with a reading to end all readings.

Our finale features special remarks on the importance of literature in translation by award-winning writer, founder and former chair of PEN World Voices Festival, Salman Rushdie. Then we travel across Europe as each of our guests read a short piece of their work in their own language as the English translation is projected on screen for the audience to read along. This very special reading fea- tures our European guests, Colin Barrett, Cristian Crusat, Susana Moreira Marques, Immanuel Mifsud, Mihkel Mutt, Asle Skredderberget, Yoko Tawada, and Szczepan Twardoch. Our MC for the evening is NLE President and translator, Sean Bye.

Proudly co-presented by ALTA and Scandinavia House.
