Bachmann prize winner
Dorothee Elmiger, who received second prize in this year’s Ingeborg-Bachmann competition in Klagenfurt, was born in Wetzikon in 1985 and grew up in Appenzell. She studied at the Swiss Literary Institute in Biel and spent a semester at the Literary Institute in Leipzig.
In her award-winning novel “Einladung an die Waghalsigen” [Invitation to the Brave], she tells the story of two sisters who have to assert themselves in the post-apocalyptic world of a former coal mining area.
The author’s reading is part of the series “Das andere Buch an der Uni” [A different type of book at the Uni]. The HSG Library invites the public twice a year to readings within this framework. Admission is free.
