Autumn of Brazilian Literary Events at Embassy of Brazil in London.

Critically-acclaimed writers João Gilberto Noll and Paulo Scott have teamed up for a special event at the Embassy of Brazil as part of each author’s 2014 UK tours.

They will be reading from their latest works and leading a discussion on subjects including the state of contemporary Brazilian literature, the short story in Brazil, delving into its multiple social and cultural issues.

Noll will be in the UK to promote the short-story anthology The Book of Rio (Comma Press, 2014), which contains his story Alguma Coisa Urgentemente (Something Urgently); Scott will be here to launch the UK edition of his Machado de Assis Prize-winning novel Habitante Irreal (Nowhere People), recently published by And Other Stories.

In celebration of Brazil’s rich literary culture, independent publishers Comma Press and And Other Stories, both keen promoters of the short story and of outstanding fiction in translation, are proud to introduce these two highly-respected and much-loved authors to UK readers.

The event will be chaired by And Other Stories editor and translator Stefan Tobler. The readings will be in both English and Portuguese. Wine will be served.

First come, first served basis.
