Wells has been making a name for himself with novels such as Becks letzter Sommer from 2008 (also a film starring Christian Ulmen) and Vom Ende der Einsamkeit from 2016. This latter novel won the 2016 European Union Prize for Literature and is his first book to appear in English (The End of Loneliness, translated by Charlotte Collins).
Wells will be reading in both German and English, and there will be an opportunity to ask questions of the author.
We hope you'll be able to join us! If you'd like to learn more about the author, this 2018 article from The Guardian is a great place to start.
This reading is brought to you by the Waterloo Centre for German Studies in cooperation with Goethe-Institut Toronto.
This is a free event open to all. An RSVP is not required to attend the event, but it will provide you with updates and it helps us to plan our event.
