On a small scale, a first public reading by the Salam Kalam Reading and Writing Circle will take place on September 29 in the cozy Afghan restaurant Noosh. Since May 2020, the participants of Salam Kalam have been working on texts on this year's festival focus "Silk Road" and international contemporary and historical literature. Essays, short stories and reflections were written for this purpose.

The reading will take place with the authors Aftab Hussein, Hamed Abboud and Traude Pillai-Vetscher, among others. Furthermore, texts by Elif Shafak, Rafik Schami and the participants of the Lesse- und Schreibkreis will be read.

Moderation: Helga Neumayer & Sarita Jenamani (Words and Worlds)


In cooperation with Fremde werden Freunde


Furthermore we thank the magazine Words & Worlds for the cooperation.


The event is supported in particular by the Cultural Department of the City of Vienna - Literature, MA17 Integration and Diversity and the Alsergrund district.
