Event Description: About "The Author's Voice:" The six German-language authors of Festival Neue Literatur pair up with New York City actors to give a sampling from their work, providing a taste of new writing from Austria, Germany, and Switzerland featuring Daniela Emminger, Laura Freudenthaler, Pierre Jarawan, Stefanie de Velasco, Dana Grigorcea, and Gianna Molinari. The event will be moderated by one of the festival curators Tim Mohr. English excerpts will be read by the actors Adelind Horan and Robert Lyons. The event is free of charge and in English.

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 us in creating this rich, hybrid tradition, and to look forward to the new growth still to come. Please join us as we celebrate the 10th anniversary of our festival by honoring the works of our featured authors under this year's theme "In Memory We Trust." Just as the American writers Min Jin Lee and Jenny Zhang reach back to Korea, Japan, and China to find truths that explain and define their characters, the German-language authors we bring to you this spring have crossed borders of time and place to ageless maps of identity and connection.
