for an evening celebrating European Literature in Translation

FREE NO BOOKING REQUIRED

Crossing political and literary borders – Words on the Street will take you on a journey across the cultural landscape in an evening of moving and animated readings of translated work by contemporary European authors. Treat your eyes and ears to a new experience – hear voices from ten European countries, across a range of beautiful cultural venues on a trail around all sides of the handsome Merrion Square, one of Dublin’s most impressive Georgian areas.

Our venues this year are Literature Ireland, The American College Dublin, The Goethe-Institut Irland, The Irish Architectural Archive, and The Royal Society of Antiquaries of Ireland.
The first reading at each venue will start at 6:30pm and the last one at 9:00pm.
Each reading takes approximately 15 minutes and is repeated on the hour and half hour.
