lit.COLOGNE is cooperating with the following independent bookstores in Cologne, which will provide book tables and accompany the authors' signing sessions: Agnes Buchhandlung (Agnesviertel), Buchhandlung Baudach (Dellbrück), Buchhandlung Blücherstraße (Nippes), Buchhandlung Klaus Bittner (Innenstadt), Der andere Buchladen (Sülz I Südstadt), Buchhandlung Falderstraße (Sürth), Fachbuchhandlung Gaby Schäfers (Agnesviertel).
At almost all of our events, the contributors sign books afterwards. Depending on the person, this will be announced at the event.
Please note the information on our website (venues) and on site, as different rules apply in the halls.
Unless otherwise stated in the program or on the homepage, the event will be held in German.
When planning our festival, we pay particular attention to removing barriers. Many of our venues have wheelchair-accessible access and toilets as well as an induction loop; we also offer interpretation into German sign language and live subtitling (written interpretation) at some events. This is always indicated in our program with pictograms and you can also select it digitally as a filter function. Via the cultural list, we offer tickets for people with little money but a great desire for culture.
If you have any questions about inclusion, please contact Alessia Heider: email@example.com.
Numerous lit.COLOGNE events are recorded by our media partner WDR 5 / WDR 2 and in some cases broadcast as radio programs. You will find the broadcast times on the WDR website in due course.
