PETER HØEG MAKES HIS FIRST VISIT TO RUSSIA
The famous Danish author Peter Høeg makes his first visit ever to Russia, where he will meet with readers and Russian media in St. Petersburg.
Danish Cultural Institute in Russia in cooperation with the Royal Danish Consulate General in St. Petersburg are happy to announce the visit of the famous Danish author in September.
Together with his Russian book translator Elena Krasnova, Høeg will meet with readers and journalists in the Erarta Museum 3 September 2017.
Peter Høeg is mostly known for his bestseller “Smilla’s Sense of Snow” (1992), which was made into a movie directed by Bille August.
Høeg’s publications have been translated into more than 30 languages including Russian and print runs count millions of copies. Since his breakthrough on the international stage, Høeg has been hailed as the successor of other brilliant Danish authors such as H.C. Andersen, Karen Blixen, and Soren Kierkegaard.
Even though he is one the greatest Danish authors in modern time, Høeg is considered to be one of the most discreet and mysterious authors in the world, and he is rarely in the media spotlight. Therefore the visit by Peter Høeg to St. Petersburg is a great opportunity for readers and journalists to meet the author.
