Picador Professor John Haskell reads in Grassi Museum

On Thursday, Picador Professor John Haskell read from his short story collection “I Am Not Jackson Pollock” in the GRASSI Museum in Leipzig. In a room packed with approximately 80 people, the audience listened to his performance, followed by a German translation read by former ASL student and actor Alexander Munzig.
The reading was followed by a lively discussion moderated by Sebastian Herrmann, in which the audience used the opportunity to talk to John Haskell. Most of the questions focused on the role of myths in his writing, the relationship between inner, subjective and outer, social reality, and the difficulties of communicating this relationship through language.

After the reading and discussion, people stayed for drinks and food.
