NY: German author Esther Kinsky at the New Literature from Europe Festival on Nov. 28

  The German Consulate General recommends within the framework of the New Literature from Europe Festival German author Esther Kinsky will discuss her award-winning autobiographical novel, River (Transit Books, September 2018) with translator Tess Lewis. After moving to a London suburb near the River Lea, a female narrator takes long, solitary walks as she reminisces about the rivers she has encountered during her life. Exploring memory through topography and with mellifluous prose, River is a thoughtful meditation on disturbed lands, recent European history and the transience of all things human.

Esther Kinsky will also participate in Migration: Bridging the Gaps (Wednesday, Nov. 28 at 8:10 pm) and Afflicted Bodies and Disturbed Lands: A poetic Approach (Thursday, Nov, 29 at 8:10 pm). The New Literature from Europe Festival (November 27-29, 2018) will bring to New York City 14 authors from different countries to celebrate cultural diversity and heritage while addressing the current challenges of globalization and migration.

Date: Wednesday, November 28
Time: 6 pm
Location: Institute Cervantes, 211 East 49th Street, NYC
