Libri Publishers founded the Libri Prize for Literature in 2016. It has since developed into one of the most prestigious and well-respected literary awards in Hungary. The award is given for the best literary and non-fiction books of the previous year, with the aim of promoting outstanding works of contemporary Hungarian literature.
The previous winners of the Libri Literary Prize and Public Prize feature the books some incredible authors, including Zsuzsa Rakovszky, Sándor Jászberényi, Andrea Tompa, Attila Bartis, András Kepes and Tibor Bödőcs. In 2019, Edina Szvoren's short story collection Verseim (My Verses) took the jury prize, while the readers' award went to Dénes Krusovszky for his novel Akik már nem leszünk sosem (Those We Will Never Be). Our festive show will see the two winners of this year's award, Zsolt L...áng and Krisztián Grecsó, take to the Festival Theatre stage. The authors will read from their award-winning works, the novels Bolyai and Vera, discuss the creative process and reveal some of the secrets of their craft to the audience. The evening will be given a unique musical atmosphere by no less an artist than Béla Szakcsi Lakatos, a master of sensitive improvisation and a global star of the Hungarian jazz scene.
If you want to hear the best of the best, don't miss out on this once-in-a-lifetime occasion.
