World Book Day - talk with Boris Pahor

Wednesday 23/04/2008 at 7 pm, ACE Kibla -  the talk with the writer Boris Pahor within the Slovenian Book Days in Maribor.

Born in Trieste in 1913, Boris Pahor is today considered one of the most important Slovene writers, and particularly often  mentioned as a candidate for Nobel Prize for literature by the French. His writings are mainly based on his experiences that were marked by the Italian fascism and World War Two.
His works as a writer comprise more than 30 pieces, many of which have been translated into many languages. In 1992 he was awarded the Prešeren prize for his work and in 2007 he was accepted in the French Legion of Honour – the highest civilian prize that can be awarded by the French President. In the beginning of 2008 the 95-year-old writer was discovered in Italy after decades of disregard with Necropolis being published 40 years after the original Slovenian version and achieving overnight success with several reprints in only a few weeks.

The 11th Slovenian Book Days festival in Maribor is taking place between 18th and 25th April 2008, its slogan being "When the book writes you." This year the focus is on literature of national minorities and ethnic groups in Slovenia.
