The Gutenberg Society once again invites you to the evening "Friends of Gutenberg - Jour Fixe". All old and new friends of the Gutenberg Society and the popular Jour Fixe format are cordially invited to an exciting round of discussions in a spectacular cultural ambience in Mainz, for the physical well-being is taken care of.

Topic: Scandinavian bestsellers on the German book market - analysis of the current literature boom
Speaker: Dr. Elisabeth Böker

Why is Scandinavian literature so successful? The book history scholar Elisabeth Böker unravels the secret of Scandinavian bestsellers - including Jostein Gaarder's Sofie's World, Peter Høeg's Fräulein Smilla's Sense, Henning Mankell's Wallander series, Stieg Larsson's Millennium Trilogy and The Centennial that Climbed Out of the Window and Disappeared by Jonas Jonasson. The lecture deals with the literary aspects as well as the book-scientific perspective.

Afterwards a wine tasting of the Mainzer winegrower JANZ takes place. Please register per e-mail at info@gutenberg-gesellschaft.de or by telephone at (+49)6131-226420.
