Words on the Street 2019 - A European literature trail



Words on the Street 2019 - A European literature trail

Crossing political and literary borders, Words on the Street will take you on a journey across the cultural landscape, in an evening of celebrity readings of translated work by contemporary European authors, taking place in stunning and unusual locations around Dublin.

The event will include readings of 'The Temptation To Be Happy' by Lorenzo Marone, translated into English by Shaun Whiteside and read by Owen Roe. The novel - a major bestseller - has been translated into fifteen languages and was used as the inspiration for a film released in Italy in April 2017.

The Italian reading will take place at Literature Ireland, Trinity Centre for Literary and Cultural Translation, 36 Fenian Street, Dublin 2

The first performance at each venue will start at 6:30pm and the last one at 9:00pm. Each reading takes approximately 15 minutes and is repeated on the hour and half hour.

All welcome, no booking required.

In collaboration with Dublin UNESCO City of Literature, Dublin City Council and EUNIC Ireland.
