The warm and cozy tents, perfect for the icy cold Berlin winter, will host reading from 35 authors. These readings will all be centered on the topic “How we became what we are.” Primary and preschool students will have a chance to enjoy the readings on Thursday and Friday afternoon, while Friday night will be reserved for the presentation of debut novels by different authors.

Due to the limited capacity of the yurts people are required to make reservations. So, if seeking refuge from the cold in a traditional Mongolian tent, while listening to some great literature sounds appealing to you, make sure you plan in advance.
