Germanophiles! Malvern Books, who hosted the book launch of Grendel’s Mother: The Saga of the Wyrd-Wife, contacted me out of the blue to help launch another writer’s new memoir. I’m delighted to join Rebecca Schuman when she reads from Schadenfreude, A Love Story about the trials of her time in Germany. I lived in Germany in the 1980s and am starting work on a memoir about my time teaching in East Germany. On the 14th I will read from a few of my published works about legendary and historical German women–and maybe say a word or two about the Stasi file that purports to have all the information about me!
