Posted by goethedoesatlanta
It’s time for an author reading again guys and this time we’re welcoming a writer from Switzerland along with the Consulate General of Switzerland in Atlanta! Ready to find out more? Just read on!
Join the Consulate General of Switzerland in Atlanta and the Goethe-Zentrum Atlanta as we welcome Swiss author Milena Moser as she reads an excerpt from her book, „Das Glück sieht immer anders aus” („Happiness – What did I expect?“)
A Q&A session with the author will follow the reading which will be in both German and English followed by a small reception.
About the author:
Milena Moser is one of Switzerland’s most well-known and beloved authors. She has published 18 books to date, novels, short stories and memoirs. They are translated in nine European languages, three of her novels were adapted for the screen. She wrote radio plays, numerous essays, and a weekly column for eight years.
Her success was not immediate: After starting to write seriously in Paris in the 1980s, she collected rejection letters for six years before her friends took pity on her and published her first three books themselves. Even her first novel, “The Cleaning Lady’s Island” (Die Putzfraueninsel), that later sold over 250’000 copies, was self-published. Her own struggle to get published inspired creative writing workshops that are famous for their fun and supportive atmosphere.
Milena Moser lived in Switzerland and in San Francisco, and she has recently made her home in New Mexico.
