Festival Neue Literatur 2017: The Author’s Voice
The six German-language authors of Festival Neue Literatur pair up with New York City actors to give a sampling from their work, providing a taste of new writing from Austria, Germany, and Switzerland. Featuring Jürgen Bauer, Zora del Buono, Simon Froehling, Fabian Hischmann, Marlen Schachinger, and Antje Rávic Strubel, and moderated by the festival curator Peter Blackstock. English excerpts read by actors. Festival Neue Literatur brings New York audiences new writing from Austria, Germany, Switzerland, and the United States, as the first and only festival to spotlight German-language and American fiction. The 2017 festival marks the first ever convening of queer-centric, German-language texts in the United States, as festival authors take on this year’s theme Queer as Volk.
