Biennial celebration of Literature
The Passa Porta Festival celebrates Literature. From 23 to 26 March, you can meet more than 100 Belgian and international authors and artists in Brussels. One of these is Max Porter: with his debut novel Verdriet is het ding met veren, he reached an audience of millions worldwide. In AB he will present his new book Shy. Nicolas Rombouts – contra-bassist with Stef Kamil Carlens, Guido Belcanto and previously Dez Mona – will provide musical support Porter during the reading. Afterwards, radio producer Ruth Joos will speak with the author. Three toppers together, a not-to-be-missed stop on your literary itinerary!
With Deux secondes d'air qui brûle, her first novel, Diaty Diallo is the revelation of the latest literary season. The Frenchwoman cites the Belgian Afrofeminist poet Lisette Lombé as an influence. This is an opportunity for the Passa Porta Festival to offer the two authors a carte blanche on the theme of refuge, the main theme of this 9th Passa Porta Festival.
