The Upper Engadine author Jessica Zuan reads poems from her book "Launa da pavagls" (published in 2023 by Chasa Editura Rumantscha). The central elements that are characteristic of her fine and thoughtful lyrics are the interpersonal relationships, the going and returning, and the waiting. The musical accompaniment to the reading will be provided by singer/songwriter Astrid Alexandre.

To date, the author has published the following volumes of poetry: "L'orizi / La tempête" (Samizdat, 2017), "Stremblidas e s-chima" (Chasa Editura Rumantscha, 2019) and "Launa da pavagls" (Chasa Editura Rumantscha, 2023). Her works have been translated into German, French and Catalan, individual poems can be read in Italian, Galician, Polish, Basque, Romanian and Estonian, and some have also been set to music.
