Each year, the EU Prize for Literature (EUPL) recognises emerging fiction writers in Europe. Come meet the 13 laureates of the EUPL 2020 as they take you on a literary journey across the old continent. Starting in Berlin with German winner Matthias Nawrat and journalist Thomas Böhm, the EUPL laureates read excerpts from each others' awarded books, opening up windows onto people and stories coming from Belgium, Bosnia and Herzegovina, Croatia, Cyprus, Denmark, Estonia, Germany, Kosovo, Luxembourg, Montenegro, North Macedonia, Norway and Spain.

"A journey through European Stories" was originally created for and broadcasted as part of the 17 October BOOKFEST digital livestream of the Frankfurter Buchmesse 2020.

Excerpts from the laureates' winning books in their original languages and in English translations are available in the EUPL 2020 Anthology and the 2020 Winners personal profiles
