European Literature Night

A while ago I received a distinguished phone call. Did I want to take part in the European Literature Night at the British Library in London? And yes, during the European Literature Festival on 11 May 2016 about new translated European literature. That evening I will be a guest together with the Slovenian Gabriela Babnik, the Turkish writer Burhan Sönmez, the Danish Dorthe Nors, Alek Popov from Bulgaria and the fantastic Peter Verhelst from Belgium. And so me too. We were chosen from more than
65 nominated authors. The programme starts at 18.30 in the British Library. In the afternoon at 14.00, I will also join a panel discussion on extremes of place and psyche for your characters at
the Open University.

On the evening of 10 May, I am a guest at the European Literature Festival in Newcastle to talk about ‘You have me to love’ (Birk) together with the Slovenian Gabriela Babnik.
