The Austrian journalist and writer Anna Weidenholzer comes to UL to present her book Weshalb die Herren Seesterne tragen, which was selected for the longlist of the German Book Price in 2016. The book is about Karl, a retired teacher who sets out to question people about their life satisfaction. Soon his journey seems like an escape and the questioner inevitably becomes an object of questioning himself. The visit is organised by our Austrian Lektor Natascha Guggi and is supported by the Austrian Embassy. 
 
 
We gratefully acknowledge the support of the readings by the AHSS Teaching Fund, Dr Beate Schuler, the Austrian Embassy and the DAAD.
 
All welcome!
