Daniela Dröscher, Writer, Berlin
Andreas Martin Widmann, Writer, UCL
The UCL Department of German presents a reading by German writers Daniela Dröscher (Berlin) and Andreas Martin Widmann (UCL).
Daniela Dröscher’s latest novel “Pola” was published in 2012. “Pola” imagines a period in the life of Polish-born actress Pola Negri, former lover of Charlie Chaplin and Rudolph Valentino, when she returns from Hollywood to Europe on the eve of World War II to make a film in Germany that’s intended to save her career.
Andreas Martin Widmann has published an academic book on counterfactual historical novels in 2009 and, last year, his first novel “Die Glücksparade” – a story about a boy whose world is falling apart after his father moves the family into a caravan on a run down camping site. Andreas Martin Widmann joined UCL as DAAD-Lektor in 2012.
The reading is in German and will be followed by a drinks reception.
