We’re thrilled to announce the launch of Trafika Europe Radio’s sixth season, free online, with some great literary guests in September!
In the month of August 2009, right on schedule, the plane in which I was travelling landed in Lviv. The snowy white of the airport bedazzled me.
Trafika Europe Radio is launching its fifth season with an exceptional literary line-up, featuring:
– Bulgarian-German author Ilija Trojanow on his ecological novel, The Lamentations of Zeno, and some implications for the world

“European Regions: Progress in Literary Culture” (41-minute panel discussion)
In the light of recent political and economic trends counter to a more unified Europe, panelists assess progress culturally and consider new approaches and understandings of European literary cultures and regions. Aiming for a new infrastructure for European literature, our project, including the Trafika Europe Radio initiative, seeks to foster greater openness and mutual regard among European literary communities toward a more shared European identity.
