Limericker Literaturgespräche
Centre for Irish-German Studies, University of Limerick
The Centre for Irish-German Studies invites you to our contemporary German writing series with award-winning authors from Germany, Austria and Switzerland, who will be reading and discussing their work. 
 
6 April 2018  Dmitrij Kapitelman
Room: tbc Time: 9.30am 
The German-Ukranian-Jewish novelist and Zeit journalist Dmitrij Kapitelman will visit UL to read from his book Das Lächeln meines unsichtbaren Vaters (The smile of my invisible father), for which he received the Klaus-Michael-Kuehne-Preis of the Harbour Front Literaturfestival in 2016. The book is about his and his father’s search for identity, which leads both of them to Israel. Kapitelman’s stay in Ireland is organised by the Centre and supported by the DAAD writer-in-residence programme (which will bring Dmitrij Kapitelman also to UCD, UCC and NUI Galway).
 
We gratefully acknowledge the support of the readings by the AHSS Teaching Fund, Dr Beate Schuler, the Austrian Embassy and the DAAD.
 
All welcome!
