Stories of Journey from around Europe from the Aarhus 39

by Aarhus 39

ODYSSEY is one of two anthologies that Alma Books and Hay Festival have launched, comprising original stories from the Aarhus 39, the result of an ambitious pan-European project with European Capital of Culture Aarhus 2017 showcasing 39 of the best children and YA writers aged 39 and under across Europe.

Odyssey, a volume of 21 stories aimed at young adults, offers a variety of takes on the theme of travelling – at times funny and playful, at others dramatic and poignant – covering a wide range of themes relevant to teenagers across Europe such as coming of age, sexuality, migration, identity and displacement. Whether you’re after realism or escapism, tales about inner cities, sunny holidays or sci-fi adventures, this book will have something for you.
