Czech literature at the book fair in Aarhus

Czech literature was presented at the literature fair BogGods 2019, which took place on 15-16 June in Aarhus. The fair has been a part of the big international festival LiteratureXchange.

On Saturday 15 June, three Czech books, which have recently been translated to Danish, were presented by their translators: Peter Bugge, professor at Aarhus University and renowned bohemicist who translated Karel Čapek's War with the Newts, Lada Halounová, an author of the Danish translation of The Devil's Workshop by JáchymTopol and Jonas Suchanek, the translator of Egon Hostovský's roman The Hideout.

Czech participation at the fair took place thanks to the kind financial contribution from the Embassy of the Czech Republic in Copenhagen.
