LiteraturRaum – Free reading circles in Munich for our culture guests

With the LiteraturRaum we offer two reading circles for our culture guests. Of the "Reading Circle 1" takes place under the direction of Patricia Schüttler instead of. A second "Reading Circle 2" under the direction of Andrea Schittenhelm is the motto "Books that mean the world - a literary journey around the world". The participants in the reading circles share a love of books and the joy of exchanging ideas about literature with like-minded people. Our meetings take place once a month in the premises of the KulturRaum on Zenettistraße. In each case, a book title is discussed, which was previously selected by the participants and read in preparation.

Everyone should have their say in the loosely moderated discussion rounds. It is always amazing how diverse a text can be interpreted and what different experiences each individual has while reading it. In the exchange of opinions, the participants enrich each other. In order to deepen our reading impressions, we also occasionally visit author readings, film or theater performances. And we were also allowed to look behind the scenes of a large publishing house.

The books are donated to us by publishers, so the Participation in the literature room is free of charge for our culture guests is.
