/ Update / Unfortunately, due to the illness of the author, the promotion of the book ‘Neoštrine’ by Sanja Savić Milosavljević has been cancelled.

The promotion of the book ‘Neoštrine’ by Sanja Savić Milosavljević will take place at SPENS on 17 September, within the Literature Week of the Kaleidoscope of Culture.

The publishing house ‘Arete’ from Belgrade, thanks to the support from the Creative Europe Fund, published the novel ‘Neoštrine’ by Sanja Savić Milosavljević in the German language, translated by Denijen Pauljević.

Although Creative Europe supports initiatives for the translation of literary works by the European Union writers into foreign languages, the edition of the ‘Arete’ project ‘Skok iz kože’, includes the translation of the work by the Serbian author into the German language. In addition to the print edition, which can be bought only in bookstores in Serbia at the moment, the electronic version of the book will be available worldwide on the application for electronic books.

The ‘Neoštrine’ novel was published for the first time in the Serbian language in 2016, also by the ‘Arete’ publishing house, and that year, it was on the NIN award longlist.

The ‘Neoštrine’ is a novel about accepting yourself and your past. About confrontations. About life-changing decisions.

The ‘Neoštrine’ novel keeps a reader in the present, woven with memories about growing up in difficult times. Can Astra take as much as she is capable of asking for? – The sentence that the novel intertwined with biography and fiction begins with. Ines, the main character, who lives in the Netherlands, goes to her hometown for the weekend to make important decisions. She stays in Sarajevo for three days.

Moderator: Ana Jovanović, editor of the ‘Arete’ publishing house

Partners of the Kaleidoscope of Culture 2022 are Erste Bank, IDEA, DDOR, A1 Srbija and Heineken Srbija.
