Reading at The Word, Berlin
join us for an evening of queer feminist fairytales, murderous families, and Scottish folklore! Fresh from this year’s British Council Germany Literature Seminar in Hamburg, we’re delighted to host the incredible KIRSTY LOGAN and MARY PAULSON-ELLIS for a night of readings and conversation with two of Scotland’s most exciting writers.
KIRSTY LOGAN writes queer fairytale retellings and feminist horror stories, which have drawn comparisons to Angela Carter and praise from writers such as Ursula K. LeGuin and Roxane Gay.
MARY PAULSON-ELLIS likes to wander in graveyards and write novels about the overlooked; she was named by Val McDermid as one of the most compelling LGBTQI+ writers working today.
The evening will be chaired by our own JANE FLETT, whose Scottish folklore inspired novella was one of the recipients of the Berlin Senate stipend for non-German literature this year.
Doors at 7. Readings from 8.
