Rosmarie Waldrop moved to the USA as a young woman. In her volume entitled A Key into the Language of America, she describes her immersion into the New World. Christian Hawkey has been shuttling between New York und Berlin for a few years now. How are these kinds of changes of worlds expressed in writing? Both authors will be talking about his, as will Waldrop’s translator Elke Erb. And of course they will be reading their poems.
