    Lesung in englischer Sprache, Moderation: Traci Kim

    Literally Speaking is Berlin's fiction reading series that features local writers and the authors who inspire their stories. Each month, five writers share their original work, as well as an excerpt from an author of their choice that highlights the month’s theme. The excerpts aim to get everyone in Berlin’s literary community “on the same page.” It’s a way to see what’s catalyzing our local writers and bring us closer together through literature.

    Doors open at 7:30 pm
    Reading starts at 8:00 pm

    Workshop mit Roy MacLean

    Stories can entrance, engage, even possess us. Every one of us has a story to tell; factual or fictional, cool documentary or heartfelt family journey, practical travelogue or sparkling flight of the imagination. But to become an accomplished storyteller one needs time, a conducive environment, and a sensitive guide to direct and refine individual talent.

    Englischsprachige Diskussionsrunde mit Autor*innen, Literaturwissenschaftler*innen und Expert*innen aus dem Verlagswesen

    The spaces we use for the act of reading and writing are mostly private ones: in our own rooms, at our desks, at a table in a library, almost always in isolation from others, as if in a silent dialog with authors, poets and philosophers. However, is it not the case that these acts performed in solitude can lead to a political awakening? Have reading and writing not fed, given rise to, and sustained collective political changes, movements and risings?
