The Year of German-American Friendship is a great opportunity to raise awareness of German-language literature in the English-speaking world. To this end, the branches of the Goethe-Institut in the USA are showcasing contemporary German-language literature throughout the year. Events featuring German-speaking authors are being staged at different places around the USA as part of the Books First program. For more information on Books First, please visit www.goethe.de/booksfirst.
This event invites you for an author talk and book signing with Takis Würger, reading from his English-language debut The Club. This novel is set at Cambridge University, and centers around a dining club for the most privileged and wealthy young men at the University and follows an outsider who exposes the dark secrets of this group.
