& Livestreamed

This event has been canceled due to unforeseen circumstances.

The International Library is thrilled to welcome Romanian-Hungarian writer Attila Bartis, one of the most accomplished and inventive members of the contemporary Eastern European literary vanguard, for a conversation on his bold, monumental novel The End.

This event is a hybrid event, with live viewings happening at The Center for Fiction in Brooklyn (1:30pm ET), The American Library in Paris (in Paris; 19h30 CEST), and The Center for the Art of Translation in San Francisco (10:30am PT). You can also livestream this event worldwide.

In-person tickets to The Center for Fiction include an optional lunch.

  • Lunch Option A: Ham sandwich with brie, arugula, and house-made spiced honey mustard.
  • Lunch Option B: Vegan chickpea salad sandwich.

Both options are served with an apple, a bag of salted potato chips, and a soft drink of choice.

About The International Library

This event is part of The International Library, a series launched in collaboration with the American Library in Paris and the Center for the Art of Translation which will offer conversations across time, place, and language. The International Library celebrates the live diffusion of in-person conversations in the hope of connecting new audiences across land and sea for a collective, intercultural experience. These conversations will broach deeper questions about writing and translation as we learn to think critically about how stories are told, investigating the points of view, the timing of the translations, and the intended or assumed audiences as well as inspiration, philosophy, and craft.
