Non-fiction specialist Mireille Berman from the Dutch Foundation for Literature will participate in the panel discussion ‘Small languages - the politics of translations’ on Wednesday the 5th of July.
In addition to national and local authors, Bookstan also presents British author Hanif Kureishi, Chinese author Xialou Guo, and American literary critic and author John Freeman. The festival program also includes exhibitions, concerts and an educational program for young literary critics.
