12th annual Reading Night – Reading with Quint Buchholz in Unterhaching


On April 9, 2016, Quint Buchholz will be reading his hymn to the joy of reading, “In the Land of Books”, as a part of the annual Reading Night event in Unterhaching (Unterhachinger LeseNacht).

After the reading, which will be accompanied by projections of his pictures, he will also introduce his newest illustrated book, the novel “The Story of a Snail Who Discovered the Importance of Being Slow” by Chilean author Luis Sepúlveda.

“Quint Buchholz is the painter of gentle dreams. His pictures, with their clever minimal text, tell us everything that a book can be to us: comfort, home, protection, a shield, a bed – we dream and dive through this book, happiness gently snowing down upon us until we emerge again at the end.” (Elke Heidenreich on “In the Land of Books”)
