Event Details

Welcome to the book reading of “The OLD MAN IN HIS EXILE”, a novel by ARNO GEIGER

“How do we keep one another’s company? How might our lives unfold alongside those of our parents with Alzheimer’s nearby? In Arno Geiger’s exquisite memoir, he lets us into the private and sometimes sacred space he found in the company of his father—a relationship nurtured by his own willingness to share a mutual solitude and to visit those places where his father’s spirit was broken and where it thrived.

The tender stories in The Old King in His Exile hold the quiet love between these men, and invite the reader to apprehend more of what it can mean, even in our final days, to be alive.” – Adrian Nicole Leblanc, author of Random Family: Love, Drugs, Trouble and Coming of Age in the Bronx

Excerpts from the novel will be read in both English and German.

Admission: Free
