Pulitzer-winning author Benjamin Moser will attend the Bookstan literature festival in Sarajevo. The festival begins on October 28, and will end on October 31.
The highlight of this year's Bookstan will be the promotion of Moser’s book ‘Sontag: Her Life and Work’ which is dedicated to Susan Sontag, and which earned the Pulitzer Prize for Moser. Sontag had a deep connection with Sarajevo. She visited the besieged city during the war on several occasions, and directed theater play ‘Waiting for Godot’ which premiered in the National Theater Sarajevo in the middle of the war.
Audience of Bookstan will be able to see promotions of latest editions in literature, as well as lectures and presentations by different authors. All events will be held in the Meeting Point cinema theater, but also streamed online.
