Babylon Berlin: A Reading & Conversation with Volker Kutscher

  • Starts: 6:00 pm on Wednesday, October 3, 2018
  • Ends: 7:30 pm on Wednesday, October 3, 2018
Join us for a reading & conversation with the author of the popular Babylon Berlin series, a fast-paced blend of murder and corruption sent in the hedonistic days of 20s and 30s Weimar Germany. The novels follow police inspector Gereon Rath (Volker Bruch) as he gets sucked deeper into a sordid, fetishistic world of crime and sex. Volker Kutscher was born in 1962. He studied German, Philosophy and History, and worked as a newspaper editor prior to writing his first detective novel. Babylon Berlin, the start of an award-winning series of novels to feature Gereon Rath and his exploits in late Weimar Republic Berlin, was an instant hit in Germany. The series was awarded the Berlin Krimi-Fuchs Crime Writers Prize in 2011, has sold over one million copies worldwide, and is now a critically acclaimed TV show. Volker Kutscher works as a full-time author and lives in Cologne. A book-signing will follow the event. Moderated by Cathie Jo Martin, Professor of Political Science and Director of the Center for the Study of Europe at Boston University. Co-sponsored by the Goethe-Institut Boston.
