NLE - Day 3


Now in its 13th consecutive year, The New Literature from Europe Festival is an annual celebration of writing from across the European continent. Featuring readings and discussions between leading and emerging literary voices from Europe, and some of America’s foremost writers and critics, the Festival celebrates important new European literature in translation. Founded in 2003, the NLE Festival has quickly become one of New York City’s top literature in translation events, attracting award-winning, best-selling and new authors from many diverse European countries each year. The NLE Festival is jointly organized by the European Union National Institutes for Culture (EUNIC) and New York-based European cultural institutes. Most Festival events are free and open to the public. Join us on December 7-10 for this year’s Festival and follow NLE on Twitter or like NLE on Facebook for updates.

DAY 3 | December 9, 2016


6.30pm – 7.30pm
Poets House | 10 River Terrace, New York

Join us for an intimate discussion about the art of poetry featuring four of our remarkable guest poets from Europe – Elena Alexieva from Bulgaria, is the author of two poetry books, Ladder on the Heart and Face of Killer Angel, and joins Ann Cotten whose poetry often causes the reader to find themself in the middle of a wilderness of mirrors, in which she plays with perspectives – an intrinsic part of her poetic process. Immanuel Mifsud comments that his most recent collection, Fish, shows just how many similarities he sees between the way his own life is evolving, and that of a fish in an aquarium and Krisztina Tóth whose poetry deals in an emphatic, reflected and sometimes ironic way with everyday scenes and conflicts. Together they’ll be in conversation with (TBC).
