Leipzig Liest has a long tradition of quality readings and events that take place all over Leipzig during the Leipziger Buchmesse. From its inception Leipzig Writers e.V. has taken part in the book fair fringe, from our first literary concert at Noch Besser Leben, to Poniatowski, to this year’s at the newest on our list of regular venues: homeLE.
This year old & new members of Leipzig Writers try something with a different flavour. hiStories brings you 5 unique voices with 5 distinct styles from 5 different cultures performing a mix of poetry, short stories, a novel extract and music. homeLE, renowned & conceived as a cultural and family-friendly cafe, is the perfect venue for this limited capacity (35) literary extravaganza. The small intimate setting will comfort you at once, while the content will put you at ease or, conversely, challenge you.
Every culture has a history, but the personal story is often what grips us. This is what each artist will bring to the stage on the evening, as well as a surprise or two from the hosts Maike, the cafe MOMprenuer, and Ralf. Leave feeling refreshed and thoughtful and thirsting for more.
