The Danish author Jens Christian Grøndahl opens the Passa Porta Festival 2011 with a reflection on its theme: On the move. Grøndahl will talk about the journey that unfolds in books, and about writers and readers who encounter each other and the world like lost travellers on the invisible paths of fiction: ‘leaving, travelling, changing and being free – not to be someone or the other, but simply to be… ’
Reading and interview, followed by a happening on the freedom of expression and forbidden books, at La Tentation (Lakensestraat / rue de Laeken).
Jens Christian Grøndahl is one of today’s most successful writers. His intimist novels are published in more than 30 countries.
