Festival Neue Literatur
You're in New York or thereabouts and it's cold and you feel the need for German-language writers in your life? No need to book a flight to Berlin - go to the Festival Neue Literatur instead. Featuring Ulrike Ulrich and Tim Krohn from Switzerland, Clemens J. Setz and Cornelia Travnicek from Austria, Leif Randt and Silke Scheuermann from Germany and two men called Joshua from America, in translations by Ross Benjamin, Margot Dembo, Tess Lewis, Anne Posten and the rather royally titled Marshall Yarbrough. From February 22-24. I hear the brunch sessions are particularly good - including free food. But obviously you should go anyway.
