ACFNY sponsored 'Angel of Oblivion' Book tour

Maja Haderlap’s Angel of Oblivion is a groundbreaking novel based on the author’s own family story as part of the Slovenian-speaking minority in southern Austria and that community’s struggle against the Nazis during World War II. The novel was awarded several prestigious awards including the Ingeborg Bachmann Prize.

For her outstanding translation of a sample text, translator, editor, and literary critic Tess Lewis was presented the 2015 ACFNY Translation Prize.

Together with Archipelago Books, and in cooperation with other partners, the ACFNY is pleased to present the author and her translator on tour to New York City, Washington DC, and Boston during September and October 2016.
