HKW will be closed from Jan 7 until 26.
Reading together has consequences: that’s what six reading groups are showing this year.
They present their reading impressions and insights into the six shortlisted books—in close dialogue with authors, translators and the audience: a collaborative exchange not only on the makes and means of literature but rather on the makes and styles of reading.
