The Rescue of Hans Fallada
Where: Goethe Institue, 150 N. Michigan Avenue, Chicago, Illinois 60601
Dennis Johnson, publisher of Melville House Press, and Julia Keller, Pulitzer Prize winner and Culture Critic for the Chicago Tribune, will discuss the career of Hans Fallada. Having fallen into literary obscurity, Fallada’s works, including Every Man Dies Alone, have been re-released by Melville House Press to strong sales and critical acclaim. Johnson and Keller will discuss the appeal of Fallada’s books and why, after a half century of silence, they speak to us today.
This program is sponsored by the Goethe Institute and Seminary Co-op Bookstores, Inc. Books will be for sale at the event.
