EU Prize for Literature Authors at Jaipur Literature Festival

From 2 to 23 September, four European Union Prize for Literature (EUPL) winning authors will participate in the Jaipur Literature Festival’s Brave New World programme. The European authors will be invited to take part in digital panels with renowned Indian writers, journalists, and opinion makers.

This initiative is organised by the Jaipur Literature Festival (JLF), in collaboration with the Cultural Relations Platform and the Delegation of the European Union to India, and is supported by the European Union.

The activity will aim at enhancing EU-India cultural ties, through the promotion of European literature at Asia’s largest independant literary festival: the Jaipur Literature Festival.

Agenda for the 4 first events:

  • 2 September (Wed) @3.30PM CET – Selja Ahava (Finland, 2016)
  • 4 September (Fri) @3.30PM CET – TBC – Donal Ryan (Ireland, 2015)
  • 16 September (Wed) @3.30PM CET – Beqa Adamashvili (Georgia, 2019)
  • 23 September (Wed) @3.30PM CET – Matthias Nawrat (Germany, 2020)​

Given the current situation due to COVID-19, the cooperation with JLF will include in the longer term both digital and physical events. Live events in Jaipur, India, would be organised in 2021 depending on the public health situation and are subject to discussion with the Cultural Relations Platform and the EU delegation in India.
