In response to the changes faced by Europe, literature can offer new and challenging views on our identity, history and diversity. European Writers’ Tour invites you to meet some of the most exciting writers from across the channel, as we bring authors to the UK and share their stories and experiences.
Johannes Anyuru is a half Swedish, half Ugandan novelist and poet and will be in conversation with Boyd Tonkin. His novel A Storm Blew in from Paradise was a bestseller in Sweden.
The European Writers’ Tour 2017 is a EUNIC London project coordinated by the Institute Camões (Portugal) in partnership with the Royal Society of Literature and the British Library. It is supported by The European Commission Representation in the UK and EUNIC Global, with additional support by the Czech Centre, Flanders House, the Institut Francais and the Embassy of Sweden.
