Read Me I am Yours

Our World Literature Day offers a pan-European feast of contemporary writing from Albania, Croatia, France, Germany, Ireland, Italy, Poland, Slovenia and the Ukraine. Featuring a sparkling array of international award-winning authors, this day of readings begins with the launch of a two-year European project Read Me I am Yours and culminates in our ‘World Perspectives’ event which celebrates foreign literature in English translation.
The ‘Read Me I am Yours’ project sees Cúirt partner with Vilenica International Literary Festival, Slovenia and the Festival of World Literature, Croatia. This partnership aims to create opportunities to promote cross-cultural understanding and to encourage intercultural dialogue with a special focus on literature from lesser known linguistic regions. The project aims to facilitate greater access to literature and spoken word in minority languages and dialects by creating an online portal to share work produced as a result of authors’ exchanges, discussions, colloquiums and literary readings that will take place throughout 2019 and 2020.
Musician Ronan Browne will be accompanied by a selection of our European guests to officially launch the project.
