Festival Neue Literatur, the first and only festival to spotlight German-language and American fiction together, will take place March 2 – 5, at venues throughout New York City. The theme of the 2017 festival, curated by Peter Blackstock, senior editor at Grove Atlantic, is “Queer as Volk.” As queer people face a hazardous political climate both in the United States and in Europe, stories about the LGBTQ community become all the more critical.

And how do we ensure that the stories of LGBTQ people are told in a time of rising reactionary sentiment?Buy tickets/get more info now
