Tout le monde ♥ NRW – Ulla Lenze, Whitney Scharer & Larissa Aimée Breidbach on Cologne, Paris, New York and two exceptional lives


English German

This event brings together authors from North-Rhine Westphalia and the rest of the world! Because, as we’ve always known: Tout le monde ♥ NRW. In Der Empfänger [“The Receiver”], author Ulla Lenze has written a spectacular novel about her great-uncle who emigrated to New York in the 1920s and, owing to his amateur radio hobby, was later recruited by the Nazis. “In clever scenes and wonderful details, she portrays the inner nature of faraway places and the people who live there” (Inger-Maria Mahlke). Ulla Lenze meets Whitney Scharer, whose novel has been enthusiastically received in the USA. The Age of Light takes us to Paris in the 1930s, where female war reporter Lee Miller falls in love with Man Ray. “Take note of the name Whitney Scharer! Even with her debut novel, she knows how to captivate” (WDR 5). The two authors will talk about telling stories set in distant places as well as about reality, fiction and the power of literature. Host: Shelly Kupferberg; German text: Larissa Aimée Breidbach
