I knew that there was going to be a European Union Literary Panel at the Humanities Fest, but didn’t know it was part of a series of three events billed as the European Union Literature Festival. Three events over three days featuring six EU writers: Ulrich Peltzer (Germany), Ray Loriga (Spain), Dacia Maraini (Italy), Dai Sijie (France), Katrin Roeggla (Austria) and Abdelkader Benali (Holland). Day One is a panel, and the next two days offer readings, three authors per session. All have books available in English except Roeggla. Maraini is supposed to be quite a character. Should be fun.
