German Stories At Salone del Libro di Torino

18 – 22 May 2023

In advance of Italy’s Guest of Honour appearance at Frankfurter Buchmesse 2024, we are inviting four great German-language authors to the international book fair in Turin: Salone del Libro di Torino.

Esther Kinsky, Eva Menasse, Antje Rávik Strubel and Andreas Weber will talk about wounds – in the Earth and in the souls of people whether due to earthquake-related tremors or historical guilt – as well as about the struggle for personal integrity and the art of making compromises.

All events will be accompanied by German-Italian interpreters.

The Turin International Book Fair or Salone del Libro di Torino is the oldest and largest book fair in Italy, held annually in mid-May in Turin. It attracts more than 1,000 exhibitors and 175,000 visitors every year. 30 event forums invite you to participate in lively debates and talks.

Antje Rávik Strubel talks with Cristina Vezzaro

Adina, who grew up on the Czech-Polish border, leaves her small village to study in Berlin. She meets a fascinating photographer there and navigates the Bohemian culture. In the wake of a sexual assault, she flees to Helsinki, where she tries to rebuild her life with Leonides, an activist and member of the European Parliament. But when her attacker reappears, the horror of the past returns and the protagonist fights back with what she carries inside herself. She is the last of the Mohicans.
