Poets‘ Corner in Marzahn-Hellersdorf


2023-06-05, 6:00 PM

Bezirkszentralbibliothek Mark Twain | Marzahner Promenade 55 | 12679 Berlin


Hidden in the Freizeitforum Marzahn is one of Berlin’s most idyllic islands, the Mark Twain District Central Library. Here we can find shelter under indoor palms, enjoy unexpected views and discover skyscrapers that rise into the sky like distant mountains. Before and after the poets guide us through the various floors and present their poems, we can spend some free time in the inner courtyard or snorkel down to the bottom of the adjacent indoor pool next to the library. The texts of the participating poets, Pascal Bovée, Magdalena Jadwiga Härtelova, Jorinde Minna Markert, Cleo Wächter are also exploratory, playful and investigative. They will be accompanied on this evening by the Marzahn pianist Thomas Krüger. In addition, the library’s writing workshop, which brings together and promotes young talents of the district every 1st Saturday of the month, will exhibit texts.


Piano: Thomas Krüger
