Event Description

European Prize for Literature

In order to showcase and promote the ‘European Prize for Literature’, Mountmellick Europe Direct will be holding a presentation and display on Friday 6th November to introduce the audience to the broad range of new literary talent appearing within the EU. The aim is to put a spotlight on the creativity and diverse wealth of Europe’s Contemporary literature in the field of fiction. The winners selected for the prize are provided the opportunity to reach a wider and more international audience and have their work translated throughout the EU. As a result the presentation and display at Mountmellick Europe Direct will introduce the audience to new exciting authors from around the European Union and encourage readers to explore the vast wealth of talent available throughout Europe.
