Leïla Slimani – Video recording

Prix Goncourt winner Leïla Slimani presented her bestselling novels "In The Country of Others" and "Dans le jardin de l'ogre" in Zurich. She was celebrated like a rock star by the Zurich audience! And rightly so! It was a great evening. The extremely stimulating conversation with the author was conducted in French by Gesa Schneider, director of the Literaturhaus Zürich. Actor Thomas Sarbacher read from the German translation. You can now watch the event again as Video on Demand - tickets are available here.
