In Another Country: Bernd Cailloux in Conversation with Daniel Zahno

As a prelude to our Literary Mews – a festival within the PEN World Voices Festival - Bernd Cailloux, the current writer-in-residence at Deutsches Haus at NYU, and the Swiss author Daniel Zahno (writer-in-residence at Deutsches Haus at NYU, 2010), will read from and discuss their work, focusing on a sense of place and how the location one writes in influences the act of writing. How do the cities, countries, and continents a writer has lived in or visited, influence the words he or she puts on a page? What is it like to write about one place, while firmly rooted in another? Both Bernd Cailloux and Daniel Zahno have engaged with this subject matter in great depth and will discuss their experience and the inspiration behind their work with the journalist Claudia Steinberg.
