Reading Christmas short stories, drinking Glühwein (hot vine) and having good company – is there any better combination? All of this and more was to be had last night at an “Adventslesung” (loosely translated a “Christmas book reading”) in Dresden. Three young authors from Dresden – Frank Goldammer, Willi Hetze and Francis Mohr – were reading from their own short stories most of which had a Christmas theme or were at least set in Winter.
Most of the stories were really tongue in cheek albeit gave you something to chew on and think about as well. So it wasn’t necessarily light literature, and I thought that really fitted Christmas which is or at least should be a time of reflection and contemplation as well.
All three authors publish their books at “Dresdner Buchverlag“.
