Maxim Leo – Reading Tour in the Netherlands (Goethe-Institut)

The Goethe-Institut Amsterdam invites all the German language enthusiasts in the Netherlands to attend one of the reading sessions organised across the country to promote the latest book of the German author Maxim Leo, ‘Wo wir zu Hause sind – Die Geschichte meiner verschwundenen Familie‘.

In search of his family’s past, Maxim Leo finds a togetherness that knows no boundaries. The writer aims to deliver these feelings to the public during four appointments of his reading tour:

November 16, 13:45-15:30, Utrecht University;

November 16, 19:00-21:00, NHL Stenden Hogeschool Leeuwarden;

November 18, 17:00-18:30, Hogeschool Utrecht;

November 18, 19:30-21:00, German Library the Hague.

Other than winning the Theodor Wolff Prize in 2006, Maxim Leo was also awarded the European Book Prize for his autobiographical book ‘Keep Your Heart Ready‘ in 2011. More information on the author, the description of the novel, and further details on the events of the reading tour can be found on the website of the Goethe-Institut Niederlande.
