About the event

Music & Literature editor and former Booker International Prize judge Daniel Medin will be chairing a series of readings and conversations about the dreams and fictions surrounding the social and political debates of today.

This salon-style event will see Jonathan Coe talking about his new novel Middle England, set in the aftermath of the British referendum, French writer Olivia Rosenthal and her translator Sophie Lewis reading from To Leave with the Reindeer and questioning our modern ways of life, and Italian writer and FILL festival co-founder Claudia Durastanti discussing the place of European fiction in our reading landscapes.

The Institut français will go ‘Beyond Words’ with the third edition of their annual festival, bursting with bilingual live literature events, writer talks, musical performances, shared reading experiences, book launches, screenings of recent literary adaptations, staged readings, translators’ pitches and plenty of books to read and discover.
