2011 New Literature from Europe Festival

2011 New Literature from Europe Festival

In celebration of all things literary, eight European cultural institutes in New York have teamed up to present a new edition of New Literature from Europe.

The festival’s eighth installment is devoted to the crime novel and thriller, providing ample clues to the diverse creative interpretations the genre offers across the continent. Taking place over three days, from November 15 to 17 in Manhattan and Brooklyn, the literary festival features discussions and readings by writers Caryl Ferey (France), Zygmunt Miloszewski (Poland), Ana Maria Sandu (Romania), Stefan Slupetzky (Austria), José Carlos Somoza (Spain), and Jan Costin Wagner (Germany).

A special film series complements this year’s spoken word programs, featuring both adaptations of crime novels and new approaches to the genre that remind the literary innovations of decades past. Co-presented with the Museum of the Moving Image from November 18 to 20, the series ranges from Czech and Austrian films of the ‘40s and the early ‘50s rarely seen in the U.S. to contemporary productions from France, Germany, Italy, Poland, and Romania. Film adaptations of novels by authors Zigmunt Miloszewski and Jan Costin Wagner are also in the lineup.

All literary events are free and open to the public. Purchase tickets for the film screenings and find out more details on the festival, guest authors and events.
