Description

Author Jeong You Jeong Invited to International Literature Festival Berlin

 

Founded in 2001, the festival takes place in autumn each year with guests from all around the world, and offers events such as readings, discussions, and workshops over a 10-day period. This year’s festival took place from September 5 to 15.

Jeong’s event took place at 7PM on September 6 at the Literaturhaus Berlin. Emcee Stephanie Grote drew audience attention with her focus on the characters of Jeong’s novel Sieben Jahre Nacht (Seven Years of Night). Jeong explained that her purpose for writing the book was to test her love for humanity and her ability to empathize. One day earlier, on September 5, Jeong met with readers at the Korean Cultural Center’s Space Godo to discuss her inspiration and the writing process. Referring to the murder of a neighbor in the past, Jeong described ways in which the evil lurking in people’s hearts becomes realized. The book sales and autograph sessions following the events served to confirm local readers’ interest in Jeong’s work
