Love. War. Music. Cats. Incredible and incredibly beautiful letters with Anke Engelke, Gerd Köster, Claudia Roth and Benjamin Sadler


Sign language

Dear lit.COLOGNE audience, you already know the work Letters of Note: An Eclectic Collection of Correspondence Deserving of a Wider Audience. This evening, we will expand the topics addressed in personal post to cover four essential themes: love, war, music and … cats! We will find out that Hollywood legend Jack Lemmon and his colleague and friend Walter Matthau jokingly planned to open a cat ranch in Mexico. We will be witness to an early form of “Farmer Wants a Wife” carried out in letters. And we will hear letters from Tom Waits, Frida Kahlo, Martha Gellhorn and many more. Anke Engelke, Claudia Roth, Benjamin Sadler and Gerd Köster will read from the new curated series, published in German by Heyne Hardcore, which is just as touching and exhilarating as it is educational and inspiring.
