While cultural encounters all over the world are currently taking place mainly in the virtual realm due to the Covid 19 pandemic, we are particularly pleased that the European Literature Days 2020 will take place as planned in Krems on the Danube from 19 to 22 November, thus enabling a personal literary and cultural dialogue.

In keeping with this year's theme "More Wilderness!", the Wachau, one of the most beautiful cultural landscapes in Europe, will once again be a meeting place with numerous cultural and literary highlights: In readings and discussions, exhibitions and concerts this year, Petina Gappah, Matthias Politycki, Ariadne von Schirach, Edo Popivić, Polly Clark, Sjón, Miek Zwamborn and Olga Gryaznova will be among those performing.

Please make note of the date. Further information will be available in september.
