Reading and Talk- “Garz erzaehlt”: an Evening with Esther Dischereit

Deutsches Haus at NYU presents an evening with author Esther Dischereit who will speak about her new book Havel, Hunde, Katzen, Tulpen—Garz erzählt [Havel, Dogs, Cats, Tulips—Garz Talks]. She will also read from the book, a collaboration among young German and Austrian authors and Esther Dischereit, in both German and English.

Young authors traveled to the village of Garz at the river Havel, took notes, and recorded: about the sluice keeper, about big fish in the refrigerator, about the dream of a young waitress. Russians and Poles, the postwar era, the GDR, the time after 1989, and about how the village is rolling up its sleeves. A small town with 145 souls, located North-West of Berlin. Based on a variety of many different snapshots and portraits, a vivid picture has been created—Garz talks.
