EUPL at Feria Internacional del Libro de Bogotá (FILbo) Tue, 30 Apr 2019 15:25:32 +0000 http://www.euprizeliterature.eu/news/20190501/euplatfilbo http://www.euprizeliterature.eu/news/20190501/euplatfilbo EUPL winners Dulce Maria Cardoso (Portugal), Afonso Cruz (Portugal) Raquel Martínez-Gómez (Spain) will participate in an event that explores the role of literature in Europe in the face of new political challenges. Today, Europe is mired in a debate about its future which is being drawn ever more towards  the political forefront in advance of the EU Parliamentary Elections in May. Rising populist movements question European values while new proposals emerge aiming to revitalize the European project. The event will thus explore such developments from a literary point of view. 

In addition to this above event, these three EUPL winners are featuring separately in a collective total of a dozen other literary events taking place across the festival’s programme. Download the attached PDF (in Spanish) for more information.
