If you want to understand what has been happening in Syria for the past five years, you have to look beyond the news headlines and listen to Syrians. That’s why we picked as the first book “Innenansichten aus Syria”, a collection of texts by Syrian authors, edited and translated by Larissa Bender.
We are thrilled to have Larissa Bender participating in the first book club meet-up on April 6 at Bonn’s public library. Two different stories by Kahled Kahlifa and Nihad Siris will be read at the meeting (alternating in Arabic and German) followed by a discussion (in German, English and Arabic).
The reading is the launch meeting of the multi-lingual Bonnections book club, initiated by refugees and volunteers for intercultural exchange and sharing of stories and ideas.
