Due to a death in family Tahmima Anam, who was scheduled for the second evening of Letterature, will not be able to attend the Festival. Tahmima Anam's unpublished text "THE GOOD MUSLIM" will be read by Valentina Carnelutti.

The evening is brought to a close by a surprise guest speaker, the Indian writer Siddharth Shanghvi, who will read an unpublished text which, through the tragicomic story of a young ex-model, represents India as a land of great contradictions, torn between ancient traditions and its rapid and greedy Westernization, prey to money making schemes: a vulgar and globalized country.
