Festival Literatursommer Schleswig-Holstein



Switzerland is this year’s partner country at the Literature Summer Schleswig-Holstein (Germany). The guest of honour Adolf Muschg opened the festival on July 19 in the presence of the Swiss Ambassador in Berlin, Christine Schraner Burgener. Adolf Muschg, Peter Stamm, Arno Camenisch, Dana Grigorcea, Michael Fehr and Ursula Priess will be holding more than thirty readings in different places in Schleswig-Holstein until the end of August. A poetry exhibition featuring modern poetry from Switzerland is shown at the same time in the Old Botanical Garden in Kiel, home to the Literature House Schleswig-Holstein. Inside the house, literary maps of Switzerland allow the visitors to stroll through the Swiss literary landscape.
