: The main focus of the third year of our literary translation project entitled EUROPEANA was the translation and the publication of 10 books from 10 European languages, as well as book launches and promotions and guest appearances of 4 authors whose books were a part of the project. Seven of these works are translations from the lesser used European languages (Hungarian, Romanian, Bulgarian, Norwegian, Portuguese, Italian and Croatian), while the remaining three are translations from English, German and French.
The works published were the following: The Bone Clocks by David Mitchell, Rod by Miljenko Jergovic, Im Stein by Clemens Meyer, Resistere non serve a niente by Walter Siti, A Vege by Bartis Attila, La delicatesse by David Foenkinos, Degete mici by Filip Florian, As primeiras coisas by Bruno V. Amaral, I vsicko stana luna by Georgi Gospodinov and Beatles by Lars Saabbye Christensen.
The publication of these works was covered by all traditional media in Macedonia, as well as the social networks. Particular emphasis, considering contemporary human habits, was placed on their presentation in the social media. What stirred the particular interest of our readership were the guest appearances by the 4 authors, Filip Florian, Bruno V. Amaral, Miljenko Jergovic and Bartis Attila. The promotions were successfully organised, with great interest and large attendance of the audience, and all four authors gave numerous interviews for the media. Videos were recorded during the authors’ appearances in our city and their promotions and posted on YouTube and social media. We would particularly like to emphasise the 30 minute documentary made about the work and the experiences of ILI-ILI with the EACEA programme in the last few years. In all these activities it was stressed that the project was supported by the EU Creative Europe Programme.
The third year of this programme saw a successful wrap-up of ILI-ILI’s three-year EUROPEANA project.
