Salon Fluchtentier am 11.10.18 und am 12.10.2018
Der Fluchtpunkt während der Buchmesse. Jeder und jede ist willkommen und soll Texte schmettern! Bis keiner mehr steht und der Wirt auch. Haltet euch, fest! Alles andere ist sowieso nur billige Nachahmung vom einzig wahren Original.

Messedings überlebt? Salon Fluchtentier und die slowenische Dichter*innenplattform Versopolis (http://www.versopolis.com) laden ein – im Herz der Stadt, rücklings zum Bahnhofsviertel! Wir geleiten mit drei herausragenden lyrischen Stimmen ins Abendprogramm. Es lesen: Petr Borkovec (CZE), Stanka Hrastelj (SVN), Daniela Seel (DEU).
