Alys Conran in Berlin

Literature Wales is leading a celebration of Welsh Literature in Germany with a visit by award-winning Parthian author Alys Conran to Berlin this week.

During her visit, Alys will take part in two events - one with students of the Master in British Studies course Humboldt University (who have studied Pigeon), as well as a discussion and reading of both Pigeon and her new novel Dignity (W&N, 2019) open to the public. (25th June, 5pm, Centre for British Studies. Full details can be found here.)

The trip takes place with support from British Council Wales’ Wales Europe 2019-20 Fund and will also kick-off wider international projects centred around the UNESCO International Year of Indigenous Languages.

"There is great interest from partners in Germany to host events with Welsh writers – particularly those addressing the unique linguistic landscapes of our nation. This interest stems from an aspiration to discover more about the nations of the UK, particularly in the context of a new relationship between the UK, its devolved nations, and Europe." - Literature Wales
