Ein Jahr in Kalifornien

Villa Aurora presents Kerstin Zilm, reading from her newest book Ein Jahr in Kalifornien.

Finally the dream comes true: her assignment as foreign correspondent for the German public radio network ARD brings Kerstin Zilm to California. Full of enthusiasm she discovers coast, desert, San Francisco, Los Angeles and the national parks. She meets celebrities, admires dolphins at sunset and stays at a camp ground with direct connections to aliens. Even traffic jams and the perils of bureaucracy cannot stand in the way of her California adventure. It is a wonderful trip and an invitation to pack your bags and follow her. 




Born in Munich, Germany and having grown up close to the black forest, Kerstin Zilm discovered her love for reporting as an intern at RIAS - Radio in the American Sector - in Berlin shortly after the wall came down in 1990. For 13 years she worked as reporter, host and editor for several German public radio stations including assignments as junior correspondent in Washington D.C.. In 2003 she came to Los Angeles as head of Germany’s Public radio’s correspondent for the U.S. West coast. In 2008 she founded her own production company soundslikerstin and now works for radio, print and tv.
