From May 14 to 16 I am attending the Europäische Kinder- und Jugendbuchmesse (European Children’s Book Fair) in Saarbrücken. The motto is ‘Books build bridges’ and this year’s theme is ‘ganz philosophisch’ (‘ever so philosophical’). The elaborate programme features readings by authors from various European countries and a wide range of activities.
On Friday 15 I will read from Tote Maus für Papas Leben.
