Berlin author Tanja Dückers will read on Tuesday, November 22, at 8 p.m. from her new book “Mein altes West-Berlin. Berliner Orte” (BE.bra-Verlag 2016). The reading is part of the series LITERATURSALON IM KANTKINO.

Inspired by Walter Benjamin’s memoir »Berliner Kindheit um 1900«, Villa Fellow Tanja Dückers reflects on her own childhood and youth in West Berlin of the 1970s and 80s. Through her poignant observations of everyday life she revives the lifestyles of the divided city’s West. On the streets and in courtyards, behind firewalls and in old hair salons, the author encounters oddities and sadness, comedy and tragedy, and also animals – from rats to foxes and even hippopotamuses.

This evening’s musical accompaniment will be provided by the singer and accordeonist AnniKa von Trier.


The event is supported by Villa Aurora

Tickets: 7 / 5 Euros
Location: Literatursalon im Kantkino, Kantstraße 54, 10627 Berlin
