Writers reading afternoon for the public with special invitation for migrants

Last fall, the UNESCO World Heritage Grube Messel organized for the first time, on five consecutive Sundays, public reading afternoons with special invitations for migrants. The series began on 4 November 2018 with the authors Franziska Franz and Richard Birkefeld. Both read allegories from “The Bone Counter of Haithabu!”. These series of reading afternoons is a special action in cooperation with the UNESCO Global Geopark Bergstraße-Odenwald. 

The Messel pit sees itself as a mediator between generations, people and cultures, building on the special power of personal exchange of literature. All author attending were part of the EU-RURITAGE project, therefore RURITAGE was also present during some of these afternoons.
