Iranian writer Fariba Vafi wins LiBeratur Prize

Iranian author Fariba Vafi won the LiBeratur Prize, a literary honor that is presented by the Litprom Association in Frankfurt.

She received the prize for her second novel “Tarlan”, which has been translated into the German language by Jutta Himmelreich.

“The book was published by Markaz Publication in Iran about 14 years ago. It had been translated into the German language about two years ago. I just understood from the official website of the Litprom Association that my book won the prize,” said Vafi as confirmed the report.

Published by Sujet Publications in Germany in 2015, the book tells the story of a young girl, Tarlan, who dreams of becoming a writer but she chooses to go to the Police Academy.

LiBeratur Prize is awarded annually to inform about literary developments and trends in Africa, Asia and Latin America.

“Litprom” is a non-governmental cooperation that works in collaboration with Frankfurt Book Fair and receives financial support from the German Government. It chooses the best works published in Asia, Africa and Latin America each year to be translated into German and introduces them to German-speaking audiences to make them acquainted with those works.

The winner will receive 3000 Euros and an invitation to the Frankfurt Book Fair.
