Common Ground –
Literature from Southeast Europe
The Corona crisis has brought public life to a halt, but literature knows no quarantine. It is now more crucial than ever that the Region in Focus 2020-2022 does its “cultural” share to keep things moving, which is why we are presenting parts of our planned “Origin and Belonging” Leipzig programme in our “Books for Breakfast” series.
The first episode featured author Marica Bodrožić and an homage to one of 20th century’s most eminent literary figures, Danilo Kiš. In September, after a short summer break, we picked up where we left off, with guests such as Oliver Zille, Director of the Leipzig Book Fair.
