The European Literature Night, a EUNIC Netherlands project, brings together both celebrated authors and promising literary talents from all over Europe. It is a space for exploration, for understanding differences and recognizing similarities, reimagining ‘Europeanness’ for both authors and audiences. This year’s theme is ‘Literature, the Antidote’.
We are delighted to announce that Wales based poet, actor and playwright Eric Ngalle Charles will be part of the 2020 European Literature Night. The online event will be held from 21:00-23:00 on 18 September 2020. Find out more on the EUNIC website.
The event will be livestreamed on the YouTube channel of the Forum on European Culture.
