Karl Ove Knausgård
[LIT] The Just Buffalo BABEL program which brings globally famous authors to Buffalo is coming to an end for the 2015/16 season, but not without featuring international literary sensation Karl Ove Knausgård. Knausgård is known for a six volume epic titled My Struggle, which deals with family drama in an incredibly honest and stunningly detailed way. Releasing one book a year starting in 2012, Volume 1 of this series was translated into over 15 languages, with the English version becoming a New York Times bestseller and The New Yorker’s Book of the Year. In addition to all of the well deserved accolades, Volume 1 is also the starting point for BABEL readers’ work with Knausgård. After the event, this Thursday, April 21 at Kleinhans Music Hall, an interview style Q&A will be held, and audience members will have the chance to get their book signed by Knausgård. Tickets are available at justbuffalo.org for $35, with student and library card discounts available.
