Picador Reading by John Haskell

The Veranstaltungsforum der Verlagsgruppe Georg von Holtzbrinck and American Studies Leipzig jointly hosted the third Picador Professorship Reading in the Galerie Pierogi on Thursday, November 22. In the gallery packed with over 90 guests, Picador Professor and novelist John Haskell read from his acclaimed novel American Purgatorio. The reading was complemented by actor Günter Schossböck reading excerpts from the German translation Amerikanisches Fegefeuer.
Based on the excerpts read by the author, journalist Julia Kastein moderated a discussion on John Haskell’s work.

The reading was followed by drinks and snacks. Later on, live music by DJ Haircut had the remaining guests stay in the gallery to talk to the author personally and to have their copies of his book signed.
