Meet Boris Akunin (Keynote Let’s Talk)
Meet Boris Akunin
Boris Akunin is the pen name of Grigori Chkhartishvili. He is an essayist and literary translator – and he is best known as writer of detective and historical fiction. There have been 35 m. copies of books sold in 40-odd languages and several film adaptations. And we have the great honor to be able to talk to him personally about his experiences and thoughts on the institution museum; after all, isn’t writing a novel very similar to traveling through a museum?… search of previously unknown insights and experiences!
