Reading Europe: A User's Guide

  • Sunday Times Garden Theatre Montpellier Gardens Cheltenham, GL50 1UW United Kingdom (map)

In these fraught times with so much talk around borders, walls and divisions, it feels more important than ever to be thinking and reading widely. In what may well be our last Festival still in the EU, Guest Curator Sebastian Faulks assembles a crack team of translators, writers and publishers committed to getting us to read beyond our borders: novelist and Man Booker International judge Elif Shafak, acclaimed translator Daniel Hahn, European literature specialist Rosie Goldsmith and publisher Christopher MacLehose, who is responsible for introducing authors as diverse as Haruki Murakami, Javier MarĂ­as, Henning Mankell and Stieg Larsson to British readers.
