    DA Germany Reads A Promised Land

    55361205._SY475_.jpg

    Join us as we discuss "A Promised Land" by Barack Obama.

    The book is a riveting, deeply personal account of history in the making, from the president who inspired us to believe in the power of democracy.

    In the stirring and highly anticipated first volume of his presidential memoirs, Barack Obama tells the story of his improbable odyssey from a young man searching for his identity to the leader of the free world, describing in strikingly personal detail both his political education and the landmark moments of the first term of his historic presidency—a time of dramatic transformation and turmoil.

    The book is available in hardback, e-book, and audiobook format from many booksellers.

    We look forward to discussing this interesting book with you. RSVP to receive the Zoom link.

    Book Club & Author Talk: The Dancing Girl and the Turtle

    We are thrilled to be hosting author Karen Kao for a book club discussion on February 28th, 2021, at 2 P.M. Berlin time. We will be discussing her debut novel The Dancing Girl and the Turtle. Described as an “an ambitious, striking addition to the novels showing the sleazy side of 1930s Shanghai” by bookish.asia, it is the first in a quartet of interlocking novels set in Shanghai from 1929 to 1954.

    Read more about the quartet and KarenKao on her website at https://inkstonepress.com/ and message us to pre-order a book! Through the eyes of the dancer, Song Anyi, and her brother Kang, the Shanghai Quartet spans a tumultuous time in Chinese history: war with the Japanese, the influx of stateless Jews into Shanghai, civil war and revolution. How does the love of a sister destroy her brother and all those around him?      

    Please contact anyaleonhard14@gmail.com for information on pre-ordering a book.
