O-Töne Literaturfestival

Jul 7 to Aug 25, every Thu, 19:30
MQ Courtyards, rain location: Arena21

To celebrate the 10th anniversary of the MQ, the popular Austrian literary reading festival O-Töne is offering a very special program that has been expanded to include renowned European writers. After a pre-opening reading with award-winning Hungarian author Péter Esterházy on June 20 in Arena21, the familiar open air readings begin, this year organized as high-caliber Austro-European double features on a shared theme selected by O-Töne curator Thomas Keul. O-Töne 2011 will open on July 7 with a celebration including traditional music. The festival then continues each Thursday through August 25, wandering through various courtyards in the MQ. Full details on the eagerly awaited program will not be announced until shortly before the festival since some of the books are not due for release until this autumn.
