Our globalized world is a nomadic one; with the disintegration of traditional securities and affiliations, the migrant has become the leading figure of a mobile society. A diverse mix of cultures blurs the distinctions between periphery and center. In recent years, dramas, novels, and poems from different regions of the world have found their way into our publishing houses, bookstores, and libraries. Book prize winners no longer come from the Western hemisphere, stories of migrant fellow citizens are becoming school literature, plays report on a life in transit, on the run. In order to trace this, the festival begins and ends with readings and talks by important authors from at least two worlds: Nava Ebrahimi, Nino Haratischwili and Sharon Dodua Otoo.
