The program includes a reading (also in Slovenian) by the acclaimed Austrian –Slovenian author Maja Haderlap. Her groundbreaking novel Angel of Oblivion is 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 prizes, including the Ingeborg Bachmann Prize. On the occasion, the translator, editor, and literary critic Tess Lewis will be presented the ACFNY 2015 Translation Award.
