Festival of the European Short Story

A hugely enjoyable festival featuring a host of Croatian and international writers

A hugely enjoyable festival featuring a host of Croatian and international writers, with English (and Croatian) translations of each reading projected on the big screen at each one. As last year, the festival has once again eased itself out of its continental envelope to present a fascinating cross-pairing of European and American writers, featuring Lionel Shriver (US/UK), David Albahari (Serbia/Canada), Josip Novakovich(Croatia/Canada), Santiago Roncaglioto and Fernando Iwasaki (both Peru), Samanta Schweblin (Argentina), Alvaro Enrique and Valeria Luiselli (both Mexico), Harkalz Cano (Spain), Xaver Bayer (Austria), Venko Andonovski (Macedonia)  and a host of worthwhile local scribblers. The readings take place in venues around Zagreb, are free of charge, and usually involve the provision of a bar nearby.
