New Literature from Europe 2014

A festival of contemporary European writing in which Literalab and B O D Y are media partners is taking place in New York City this Friday and Saturday, December 5 and 6th. New Literature from Europe 2014 at the Austrian Cultural Forum features nine writers from all across Europe, including the Polish author of Chasing the King of Hearts, Hanna Krall and the Czech author of Aaron’s Leap, Magdaléna Platzová. I will have an interview with Platzová appearing in Words Without Borders later in the week.
