The Association of German Bookstores organises a yearly story-reading competition. There are qualifying rounds for yeargroups, schools, towns and several regional preliminaries. The winners will appear in the Grand Final. Recently about 7500 winners at school-level tried to make it to the next round. They read aloud a passage from a book of their own choice, as well as an excerpt from Tote Maus für Papas Leben, as the German translation of A Small Chance is called. All participants received a copy of the book. Click here and here.
