Festival Neue Literatur, the first and only festival to spotlight German-language and American fiction together, will take place March 28 - 31 at venues in Manhattan and Brooklyn.

The German Consulate General Co-presents:

FESTIVAL NEUE LITERATUR brings New York audiences new writing from Austria, Germany, Switzerland, and the United States, as the first and only festival to spotlight German-language and American fiction. Please join the FNL as they celebrate their 10th anniversary by honoring the work of the featured authors under this year's theme “In Memory We Trust.”

This special 10th anniversary celebration gives festival goers a chance to reach back and reflect on the many writers, thinkers and cultural critics who have joined the festival in creating this rich, hybrid tradition, and to look forward to the new growth still to come.

ABOUT FESTIVAL NEUE LITERATUR:

Established in 2009 as a collaborative project of New York’s leading German-language cultural institutions, i.e. the Austrian Cultural Forum New York, the Consulate General of Switzerland, the German Consulate General New York, Deutsches Haus at NYU, the Frankfurt Book Fair New York Inc. (formerly known as the German Book Office), Goethe-Institut New York, and Pro Helvetia, Festival Neue Literatur (FNL) is the first and only festival to spotlight German-language and American fiction together.

For three days each spring the festival pairs up-and-coming authors from Austria, Switzerland, and Germany with literary voices from the U.S. for free readings and discussions in Brooklyn and Manhattan, bringing diverse perspectives and sensibilities into a dynamic intercultural conversation.
