Event description
The Auckland Goethe Society presents its next speaker event: An Evening with Anke Richter! (This event will be in German.)

About this Event

Liebe Mitglieder,

We're delighted to host another brilliant speaker for you: journalist and author Anke Richter - this time in German! This was our event that was previously postponed due to Covid-19. 

Anke is author of the best-selling novel Was scheren mich die Schafe, a humorous account of her experiences as a German immigrant to New Zealand. Based in Lyttelton, She is also the southernmost member of the correspondent network Weltreporter and writes for Zeit, Mare, Stern and FAZ among others, but also for New Zealand media such as North & South, NZ Geographic, Stuff and The Spinoff. Her subjects have included the severe earthquake in Christchurch in 2011, investigative topics such as sexual abuse in sects and, most recently, the 2019 Christchurch mosque attack.

The event will be primarily in German, and will include readings from Anke's book in German. Anke's book, Was scheren mich die Schafe, will be available to purchase for $30 (cash only).

For a translation of the event in German, refer to our events page. To become an Auckland Goethe Society member, refer to our membership page.

We look forward to seeing you at this exciting event!
