August 27th-29th the festival Vinjedagane will take place at the Vinje Centre in Telemark, Norway. This years’ program will have a special focus on Vesaas and translations of his work.

Four Vesaas-translators will participate and talk about translation of Vesaas: Anne Lande Peters (Japanese), Marina Heide (French), Kirsti Baggethun (Spanish) and Hinrich Schmidt-Henkel (German). Moderator is Senior adviser Oliver Møystad from NORLA
Excerpts from films based on the books and an interview with the author himself will be shown.
