Meeting will be modereted by: Tomasz Pindel
Every year, the European Society of Authorspublishes a list of under-translated or forgotten works called Finnegan’s List, made of recommendations from 10 prominent writers from around the world. The idea is simple: each author selects three titles from his or her personal library – classic and contemporary fiction or non-fiction, prose or poetry. Through its multilingual polyphony, Schwob/Finnegan’s List is striving to be a vivid expression of the essential truth that “a culture is, after all, the sum of the external influences it acquires”, to quote the Finnegan’s List 2012 committee’s member Juan Goytisolo.
In Kraków, the invited authors will talk about their picks for the Schwob/Finnegan’s List project.
This event is organized by Schwob and the European Society of Authors, in collaboration with the Conrad Festival, the Allianz Kulturstiftung and the Jan Michalski Foundation.
