Maltese language and literature will be under the spotlight this Saturday 18 March at the Abbey of Neumünster with a Maltese literary night together with the poet Antoine Cassar, writer-performer Glenn Calleja and Farah Abdi, a young Somali refugee who arrived on the island by boat in 2012, and author of the autobiography Never Arrive.
The evening will be an opportunity to meet the art and culture of this small island state of Europe, just 316 square kilometres spread across eight islands set in the Mediterranean Sea, from where writers and artists have grown and radiated out across Europe.
Presented in English and Maltese, the evening has been created in collaboration with the Printemps des Poètes-Luxembourg as part of the cultural program of the Maltese Presidency of the Council of the European Union.
Entrance is free. For more information, see the website: www.neimenster.lu.
