Julia Riedler will read.
Followed by a discussion with authors of the publication Julia Kospach, Andrea Roedig, Magdalena Stammler, Anton Thuswaldner, Bernadette Wegenstein, Helga Rabl-Stadler. 

Moderated by Günter Kaindlstorfer. 

With its natural compactness, characterised by mountains, lakes and rivers that simultaneously divide and connect, the Salzkammergut is exemplary for many other regions of the world and for how we can meet the increasing political, cultural, economic and ecological challenges facing Europe and the world. In 60 short essays, literary texts, comics and artistic positions, renowned voices from literature, science and art talk about the region, its nature, culture, history and its people. Informative, enlightening, rapturous, critical or humorous, they provide a deep insight into the Salzkammergut. 

With contributions from Bettina Balàka, Markus Binder, Isolde Charim, Tom Neuwirth aka Conchita Wurst, Mareike Fallwickl, René Freund, Barbara Frischmuth, Hubert von Goisern, Andrea Grill, Rudolf Habringer, Gerhard Haderer, Angelika Hager, Bodo Hell, Johannes Jet- schgo, Franz Kain, Günter Kaindlstorfer, Edith Kneifl, Julia Kospach, Sarah Kuratle, Nicolas Mahler, Stephen M.
