Author Event and Translation Competition with Alissa Walser on 13.03.2018

We warmly invite the DSL Community to our yearly author event with translation competition. German artist and author Alissa Walser will read for you on Thursday, 13.03.2018.

Her catalogue, which comprises of plays, prose and poetry, has earned her several literature awards. She is a member of PEN Germany. Additionally to her work as an artist and an author she is also a sought after translator. Her German adaption of poems by Sylvia Plath has earned her the Paul-Scheerbart-Prize. 

We are pleased that, fittingly to our translation competition, our pupils will have the opportunity to discuss the art and the obstacles of transferring literature into another language with an established expert.
