European Literature Days 2013

Posted at 9:05AM Tuesday 05 Nov 2013

Every year I am invited to a charming and informative literary festival in Austria called European Literature Days (ELiT). It's held in the small town of Spitz, next to the River Danube in the UNESCO World Heritage Site of Wachau. During the long weekend of events, I get to meet new authors, hear the preoccupations of my European colleagues, and participate in numerous debates about literature and culture. This year's theme was "The Limitations of Literature" and included talks on the graphic and documentary novel, and how they are challenging ideas about traditional literature, as well as panel discussions about the extent to which technology is changing our conception of literature and literary markets.
