Literary Europe Live at FESS

29 May 2016 — 3 June 2016
Literary Europe Live

Literary Europe Live events will feature in the fifteenth Festival of the European Short Story which is being held in Zagreb in Croatia from 29 May – 3 June 2016.

Just over a month after LEuL announced its selection of Ten New Voices from Europe, two of the chosen writers – Rumena Bužarovska and Zoran Pilić – will present their work at a special event at the Westin Hotel on Tuesday 31 May.

On Monday 30 May, LEuL brings together two award-winning Argentine writers – Andrés Neuman and Samanta Schweblin – who have now settled permanently in Europe.

Both Neuman and Schweblin have been included on influential lists of the best contemporary authors writing in Spanish, with their works translated into a host of world languages,

In a conversation chaired by Vladimir Arsenić, they will talk about crossing the borders of homelands and literary genres, of reality and fantasy; they talk about how to write in a way no one else dares to.

Andrés Neuman will also appear in a LEuL event moderated by Gordana Matić and Maja Zovko on Tuesday 31 May.

An Audience Development Workshop – organised by Literature Across Frontiers and Kultureger – will be held at Klub Booksa on Monday 30 May (invitation only).

The full festival programme is available on the FESS website.
