I've already been scoping out the literary scene in Berlin. It looks quite exciting, and I should have no trouble finding readings to go to. In fact, if I was already there, I'd be checking out the Poesiefestival Berlin, which is happening THIS WEEK! What a lineup of events! -- panel discussions, slams, and readers from around the world -- including Ilya Kaminsky, Don Paterson, and Valzhyna Mort.
I've also been tracking bookstores and cafes with literary events, and have even discovered the St. George's English Bookshop, which imports books from U.S. presses -- including Ugly Duckling Presse!
