The New Literature from Europe Festival returns to Scandinavia House this December. Featuring readings and discussions among leading and emerging literary voices from Europe, as well as some of America’s foremost writers and critics, the Festival celebrates important new European literature in translation.
What happens when an author takes on the role of a journalist? As creators of fiction and fantasy, are authors trustworthy sources when they take on a non-fiction role? Moderated by the BBC’s Michael Maher, authors Susana Moreira Marques, Asle Skredderberget, and Matei Visniec consider this topic and draw on their own experiences occupying these very different roles.

The NLE Festival is jointly organized by the European Union National Institutes for Culture (EUNIC) and several New York-based European cultural institutes. All six Festival events at Scandinavia House are free and open to the public. For additional Festival information and events visit newlitfromeurope.org.
