Every year, the Liberaturpreis is awarded to one female author by a jury.

The 2023 LiBeraturpreis awarded by Litprom e.V. goes to the Palestinian author Adania Shibli for her novel \"Eine Nebensache\" (“A Minor Detail”, translated from Arabic by Günther Orth, Berenberg Verlag). The jury's statement: \"In \"Eine Nebensache,\" the Palestinian author Adania Shibli creates a formally and linguistically rigorous work of art that tells of the power of borders and what violent conflicts do to people.”

The event will be followed by a reception.

The LiBeraturpreis is sponsored by the Hessian Ministry of Science and Arts and the Kulturfonds Frankfurt RheinMain.

Event with simultaneous translation: German/English.
