Elle McNicoll: A Kind of Spark

Discussion, Reading, Q&A

In class, Addie learns about women who were condemned as witches in her village centuries ago – because they were misunderstood by the people around them. Being misunderstood is something Addie knows very well. She has to mask every day, and hide the fact that her environment often over-stimulates her. Yet she is constantly bullied at school. Determined to give the persecuted women a voice, Addie campaigns for a memorial in the village square – and finds her own voice too.

The event is in German and English.
Hosted by Alexander Lehnert.
Read by Dorothee Krüger.

Text by Elle McNicoll.
