Topic: Author reading "Johannes Gutenberg. Man of the Millennium"
Speaker: Maren Gottschalk
Few inventions have changed people's lives as much as printing with movable type. With his first printing press, Johannes Gutenberg turned the lever that made mass communication, information and education possible for everyone in the first place. But the genius behind the idea stands in the dark of history. Only a few dates of his life are known. And yet: it is still possible to rediscover Johannes Gutenberg 550 years after his death. Maren Gottschalk has embarked on a search for the man of the millennium – and for his invention.
Afterwards a wine tasting of the Mainzer winegrower Zehnerhof takes place.
Date: June 27th 2019
Time: 6 pm
Location: Die Kulturei (Zitadelle Mainz)
