Festivaletteratura Mantova

Nina Polak in Italy

9-10 September 2016

Dutch debutant Nina Polak will attend the Mantova Festival as special guest of the project Scritture Giovani. Festivaletterature Mantova is celebrating its 20th edition this year. Polak will be on stage with the other writers participating in the project and will be interviewed on her writing and short story.

Nina Polak (1986) received a grant from the Dutch Foundation for Literature to write her second novel. She made her debut with We zullen niet te pletter slaan (Prometheus). The title is taken from William Wordsworth’s ‘Lyrical Ballads’. Written from the perspective of their children the novel describes the existential crises and divorce of two mothers Anna Katz and Cornelis Schardijn.
