Garden Readings


April 30, 2010 | Deutsches Haus at NYU | New York City

With Filip Florian, Rodrigo Fresán, Marcel Möring, Thomas Pletzinger, and Monique Proulx.

Co-sponsored by Deutsches Haus at NYU

Romanian author Filip Florian introduces us to strange saints, inept lovers, wanderers from old fairy tales, and local legends; Monique Proulx describes a unique landscape in her novel, Wildlives; and Marcel Möring’s In a Dark Wood explores the guilt, fear, and loss suffered by Europeans, and in particular the Jewish people, during and after the Holocaust. According to Jonathan Lethem, Rodrigo Fresán is “a kaleidoscopic, open-hearted, shamelessly polymathic storyteller, the kind who brings a blast of oxygen into the room.” Join us under the trees in the beautiful courtyard of Deutsches Haus for this special lunchtime reading with international guests of the Festival.
