Literaturhaus in Wellington
The Literaturhaus concept was first developed in Berlin in the late 1980s. Literaturhäuser are at the heart of literary life in Germany, providing a venue for innovative literary events and education and a meeting place for all those interested in books. The Temporary Literaturhaus in Wellington will provide a flexible and mobile platform for literary events that bring together different communities of readers and writers. The programme began in February and will run until October.
