The 12th instalment of Hafenlesung took place as always in our beloved venue, Golem, on October 19th. We welcomed Autumn with contemporary poetry and prose read by its authors in English, Greek, Polish, Russian and German. As usual, the evening was accompanied by an array of vegan delicacies. Our exciting international line-up was: The acclaimed poets Anja Kampmann and Jeffrey Yang, from USA, plus the British (and Russian-British) authors Lucy Jones and Anton Lang. Also, the young prizewinning writer Mercedes Spannagel joined us from Salzburg, plus Paweł Jankiewicz from Poland and Hamburg’s flaneur, author and illustrator Ansgar Hilbig. Furthermore we were superbly proud to feature the Greek-German premiere reading of foundintranslation-member Nefeli Kavouras.
