Reading Austrian Literature in New York
The Austrian Cultural Forum has established itself as a facilitator and promoter of contemporary Austrian literature offering a venue for its reading, discussion, and performance.
Please visit our library featuring over 11,000 volumes of Austriaca in German and English.
In 2014, prominent Austrian authors including Maja Haderlap and Josef Winkler are invited to present their work in New York and other cities in the US. Emerging young authors including Milena Michiko Flašar or Marjana Gaponenko will participate at various literary festivals including Festival Neue Literatur (www.festivalneuliteratur.org) or the New Literature from Europe Festival (www.newlitfromeurope.org).
As part of our ongoing efforts to increase our activities in the area of literature, the Austrian Cultural Forum will be re-launching its Translation Prize in 2014.
