Luxembourg fiction will be at the centre of this conversation between Nora Wagener, Tullio Forgiarini and Anja Di Bartolomeo. Freedom in fiction, an x-ray of a country’s little foibles and a side step thanks to the imagination.

14:25/15:30 – The challenges of plurilinguism

Literature is written in several languages in Luxembourg and this multiplicity is a strength, but also a difficulty to overcome.
How can a country have access to literature written in Luxembourgish, German, French, but also in English, Italian and Portuguese?
