Encounter in the Lonely City – Daniel Schreiber & Olivia Laing Find Hope

Two who have written about loneliness and the search for solace, Susan Sontag, the experience of addiction and the regenerative power of gardening. In conversation, Daniel Schreiber and Olivia Laing discuss the art of writing literary non-fiction and favorite passages from each other’s books – from Schreiber’s »Alone« to Laing’s »The Garden Against Time« [to be published in German in 2025]. Together they explore the healing power of art and discuss why we need it now more than ever.

With Olivia Laing, Daniel Schreiber

The event will be held in English.
