“Agos: Modern European Writers in Filipino” at the European Literature Fair

The European Literature Fair will celebrate European literature at its finest from April 4 to April 21, 2018 hosted at National Book Store Glorietta 1.

Agos: Modern European Writers in Filipino by Jaroslav Olsa Jr., the newest addition to the European Anthology series will make its big splash to Philippine shores, following the success of its predecessor Layag: European Classics in Filipino. It will present stories from various authors from thirteen European countries highlighting the works of outstanding emerging literary talents.

Dozens of new book titles will also be available to Filipino readers as the wondrous literary fair highlights the richness and diversity of European writing of all genres from all the corners of Europe – from Portugal to Poland, from Sweden to Switzerland by bringing forth a much-wider offering of European literature like never before. Over the fair’s duration of three weeks, this literary celebration will showcase the bestselling works of both classic and contemporary European writers. This project is part of the active efforts of the European embassies and cultural institutes in Manila that aims to not only showcase European diversity, but also to promote the transnational circulation of literature.

The fair is organized in partnership with the EU National Institutes for Culture.
