About the event

From 15 to 20 May 2019 Beyond Words Festival will be hosting writers, translators, journalists, musicians, academics, graphic novelists, who have a special connection with France and are interested in bringing literature to life!

As part of their European Literary Salon they will be showcasing  Olivia Rosenthal author of To Leave with the Reindeer (And Other Stories, 2019) and Jean-Baptiste del Amo author of Animalia (Text Publishing, 2019) who will share their thoughts on what it means to be a European, chaired by former Man Booker International judge Daniel Medin.
