V European Literature Itinerary.
The celebration of the European literature and diversity.
The Literature Itinerary will be realized for the fifth consecutive year this autumn, and this time it will be hosted in the Cultural Center of the Stavros Niarjos Foundation.
The EUNIC network (European Union National Institutes for Culture) invites all the friends of literature to meet with important authors from various European countries within the framework of EUNIC activities for the understanding, promotion and strengthening of cultural and linguistic diversity, and collaboration between European societies. The aim is to highlight the diversity of literary expression in Europe and to present the European literature and its writers to the public, through a series of lectures, presentations, public readings and other parallel activities.
In the 2018 itinerary, the following writers will participate: Susanne GREGOR (Embassy of Austria), Mike KENNY (British Council), Kiriakos MARGARITIS (House of Cyprus), Véronique OVALDÉ (Institue Français de Grèce), Juan Jacinto MUÑOZ RENGEL (Cervantes Institute of Athens ), Joachim SARTORIUS (Goethe-Institut Athen), Piotr SOCHA (Embassy of Poland), Ole Robert SUNDE (Embassy of Norway, Norwegian Institute of Athens).
Juan Jacinto Muñoz Rengel (Málaga, 1974) is one of the most outstanding Spanish writers of short stories and texts, and has won more than fifty national and international awards. The international press and the critics recognize him as one of the most illustrious followers of the tradition of Ítalo Calvino and Jorge Luis Borges and some of his stories have been included in the most important anthologies of Spain. Much of his work is translated into English, French, Italian, Russian and Turkish and he is published in twelve countries. “88 Mill Lane” is his first book published in Greece (ed.
