Picador Professor Justin Torres Read from His Novel

On May 17, Picador Professor Justin Torres held a reading together with Samuel Fischer Guest Professor Teresa Präauer. Moderated by journalist Stefan Mesch, the event was titled “Tiere und andere Vögel: Eine wilde Lesung,” and took place at Schaubühne Lindenfels.

Torres read passages from his bestselling novel We the Animals, which is currently being adapted into a feature film. Before and afterwards, he engaged in a lively conversation with Mesch and Präauer about the nuts and bolts of writing, about teaching literature, and, of course, about animals and humans. Many audience members used the subsequent Q&A and the get-together to ask the authors about their approaches to the craft and their experiences with writing workshops.
