Sebald Events October 2011
OK, final reminder: Grant Gee’s film Patience (After Sebald) will be arriving in North America in a few days. It will show at the New York Film Festival on Sunday, October 2, 2011 at 3:30 PM. Details here and here. Then it will go on to the Vancouver International Film Festival for several showings beginning October 5. I’ve written about Patience and Grant Gee several times before.
And across the Atlantic at the Birmingham Book Festival, Jo Catling and Uwe Schütte will present a program called “W.G. Sebald: Beyond Literature,” which will “examine aspects of his life and works that are hardly known: his role as an academic in the UK, his critical writings, his reception as a writer in Germany, and so on.” This happens on the evening of October 10.
Need more to do? Then spend October rereading The Rings of Saturn in preparation for a book discussion at the Writers’ Centre, Norwich on November 15.
