meet the author: abdulrazak gurnah, nobel prize winner in literature 2021
Abdulrazak Gurnah, one of the greatest living African writers and a winner of the Nobel Prize in Literature, is coming to Brussels. The presence of such a master of the contemporary novel will be one of the highlights of the celebrations surrounding the 20th anniversary of Passa Porta.
The international house of literature Passa Porta is a unique, multilingual meeting place in the heart of Brussels for anyone and everyone curious about ideas, texts and stories. It is where readers meet their favourite writers from Belgium and abroad and where they discover new talents. It is where authors and translators have access to a stage or a workspace. And every two years the Passa Porta Festival celebrates Brussels as a city of literature with the arrival of hundreds of writers and artists from around the world.
