31 August 2010 Amos Oz will be in Krakow in October!

It is with pleasure that we announce that Amos Oz has received one of the most prestigious literary distinctions in Italy – the Premio Napoli award. The ceremonial presentation was planned to take place with the author’s participation on November 6. Unfortunately, for that reason, he will be unable to attend the Second Joseph Conrad International Literature Festival.

Amos Oz will be our guest in Krakow on 20 October, at the invitation of his own main Polish publisher: Dom Wydawniczy Rebis, which in recent years has published Oz’s newest book Scenes From a Village Life, and on the occasion of the writer’s visit, will be preparing for publication his short stories Where the Jackals Howl.

Partner in the visit of Amos Oz to Krakow are the Kraków Festival Office and the Tygodnik Powszechny Foundation – the organisers of the Second Joseph Conrad International Literature Festival.
