ASAA Joins American Author Dave King for Reading in Leipzig

American Studies, Leipzig. 20 November 2006.

On November 16, the ASAA (American Studies Alumni Association) had invited to a literary event with American writer Dave King, who read from his novel The Ha-Ha. A story about the experience of war, about disability, silence, and endurance, The Ha-Ha was published in 2005 to much critical acclaim and soon became a national bestseller. The excerpts that were read by King brought to live a markedly American voice, rich with nuances and complex characters.

The reading attracted people familiar with the book and some who were simply curious about meeting an author and talking to him about his book and the decisions that a writer takes in writing. Among the audience were Alumni, current students, a group of high school students, and members of the American Consulate General.
