Second edition of European Story Series coming up!

We are sorry to announce that the guided visit and reading in Greek with Myrto Azina Chronides has been cancelled due to unforeseen circumstances. Thank you for your understanding and please accept or apologies for any inconvenience caused.  

The event with Isabelle Wéry will take place according to the schedule.

Literature forms an integral part of our common European heritage. This is why the European Union Prize for Literature (EUPL) and the House of European History are partnering for an exciting initiative: A European Story – a series of guided tours by European writers in three parts.

We invite you to the House of European History on 20 September for the second edition of the European Story Series. Join two outstanding European Union Prize for Literature laureates, Isabelle Wéry, 2013 winner from Belgium, and Myrto Azina Chronides, 2010 winner from Cyprus, on a special personal journey through European history. The tours will be followed by an exclusive reading of a brand-new work of short fiction on the topic of Europe in the exhibition spaces of the House of European History. For the very first time Isabelle Wéry and Myrto Azina Chronides will read their fascinating European Stories submitted for the EUPL Writing Contest “EUPL Winners Write Europe”.

Date: Thursday, 20 September, 18:30 to 20:00

Languages: French and Greek
