NEA Literature Fellows Take Center Stage

2014 National Book Festival (363x640)

Paul Auster, Mona Simpson, and Alberto Ríos are among the presenters at the National Book Festival’s Poetry & Prose Pavilion

Washington, D.C. – A new location, new conversations, and a new poetry slam are in the lineup for this year’s Poetry & Prose Pavilion at the National Book Festival. For the first time, the Poetry & Prose Pavilion will host two panel discussions about the art of translation and creative nonfiction, both art forms that receive NEA support through NEA literature fellowships. In the translation panel, author-translator Paul Auster and Natasha Wimmer (Roberto Bolaño’s translator) will talk about what it takes to translate a great work of literature from another language into English. Later, creative nonfiction writers Paisley Rekdal and Eula Biss will look at the challenges of this genre. Newly minted NEA Literature Director Amy Stolls will moderate both panels.

Sponsored by the National Endowment for the Arts, the Poetry & Prose Pavilion is part of the Library of Congress’s fourteenth annual literary festival, which takes place on Saturday, August 30, 2014 from 10 a.m. to 10 p.m. at the Walter E. Washington Convention Center, 801 Mt. Vernon Place, NW, in Washington, DC. The event is free and open to the public.
