Goethe Pop Up Seattle partners with Books First and Elliott Bay Book Company for a book reading with author Jo Lendle. Throughout the Year of German-American Friendship, Books First showcases several German-language authors at numerous events in the United States. The authors present their recently translated works and answer audience questions.
This event: Join German author Jo Lendle in conversation with Seattle-based author Matt Ruff for an introduction of Lendle’s novel All the Land (2019), a fictionalized account of the life of polar explorer and meteorologist Alfred Wegener. The book chronicles Wegener’s extraordinary journey from his childhood in Germany to the most unforgiving corner of the planet, thereby telling the story of this great adventurer and of the experiences that shaped him.
