EUPL winners attend Long Night of LiteratureS 2018 in New Delhi

The Long Night of LiteratureS 2018, which will take place from 26-28 September 2018 in New Delhi, aims to promote awareness and endorse linguistic and cultural diversity of Europe, stemming from the uniqueness of individual expressions of various authors of different backgrounds and life experiences. Furthermore, it is to mark the European Day of Languages celebrated on 26 September.

This year on this occasion the Delegation of the European Union to India together with nine EU Member States, namely Austria, Denmark, Czechia, France, Hungary, Portugal, Romania, Slovenia, and Spain, and two non-EU states, Switzerland and Georgia, have decided to organise a three-day event.

In this edition,  ten authors from ten European countries will be welcomed, amongst them three outstanding European Union Prize for Literature laureates: Gabriela Babnik, 2013 winner from Slovenia, Claudiu M. Florian, 2016 winner from Romania and Jesús Carrasco from Spain, who also won the Prize in 2016.
