On November 27th at 6 PM, Flemish writer and Vogue Amsterdam columnist Sarah Meuleman will present her debut novel "Find Me Gone" at the New Literature From Europe Festival at the Instituto Cervantes. The entire festival lasts from November 27th until 29th: you can RSVP for Sarah Meuleman's event at the Festival here.
The New Literature from Europe Festival (NLE) – New York City’s top European literary event – returns to the city for three days of conversations, panel discussions and readings (November 27-29, 2018). Now in its 14th installment, the festival brings together leading and emerging voices from 14 different countries with some of today’s foremost authors, editors, and translators to celebrate cultural diversity and heritage while addressing the current challenges of globalization and migration. The audience will hear important new voices in translation, discover new ones not yet known on this shore and engage in a vital cross-cultural exchange for better understanding and kinship among cultures.
Sarah Meuleman is a Belgian author and journalist. In 2015 she published her first novel The Six Lives of Sophie, which received much critical praise in the media and was nominated for the Bronzen Uil, for best literary debut of 2015.
In the beginning of 2016 however, she ‘remixed’ her debut novel and presented a new version with the title Wat ik je niet vertel which, again, received much critical acclaim.
On October 23rd 2018, Find Me Gone, Sarah Meuleman’s English debut novel will be published by Harper US and Canada. In January 2019 Find Me Gone will be launched in the UK. Surf to the homepage for the early (starred) reviews.
