On Stage

Reading for “Blutenburg Summer Stage”

“Blutenburg Summer Stage” is a culture program of the International Youth Library Foundation of Blutenburg Castle that will really make you forget the current restrictions on cultural life.

From July 12 to September 6, 2020 a large number of different open air events will take place in the castle courtyard (or at Jella Lepman Hall in case of bad weather) every day and evening. There will be readings, plays and concerts for children, adolescents and adults.

Among many artists like Paul Maar, Erhard Dietl, and the TangoBravo group, Quint Buchholz will also be participating. Accompanied by live music by Juli Linden (violin) and Anna Rehker (cello), he will be reading a “Praise of Slowness”: stories and poems by Johann Wolgang Goethe, Mascha Kaléko, Toni Morrison, Theodor Storm, W. C. Williams, and many others.

An evening for calming down and taking the time to fully indulge in summer’s pleasures. More information about the event (in German) as well as a registration link can be found on the International Youth Library’s website.

Online reading for World Book Day

The German Academy for Children’s and Adolescent’s Literature of the St. Michael’s Association has celebrated World Book Day at the end of April with an online series of readings this year.

The guest on May 4 was Quint Buchholz, who recited from his Sleep Well, Little Bear (Hanser, 2011). The reading (in German) can still be watched online, here on our website or on Youtube.

Quint Buchholz on the “Culture Stage”

In times of cancelled cultural events the Bavarian Broadcasting Service (Bayerischer Rundfunk) is communicating in different ways with those hungry for culture. On the newly created website “Culture Stage”, much is offered to entertain, inform and give incentive for reflection.

Right now, three pictures out of the newest books by Quint Buchholz are exhibited there, pictures from The Ocean Book (Insel-Bücherei) and To Everything There is a Season (Hanser). Three wonderful little texts, meditations on time and quietness by Niels Beintker, form the commentary.

It is definitely worth dropping by and having a little look around!

Online Reading from Pelkoven Castle

Moosach’s Pelkoven Castle and bookstore Blattgold are currently hosting the “Mooshow Special”: an online series of cultural events that can be streamed online.

On Friday, April 3, Quint Buchholz read a 45 minute “Praise of Slowness”, which included texts from his newer books (“To Everything There Is a Season”, “The Ocean Book”, and others). He also showed a number of his pictures.

A recording of the reading is available online on Pelkoven Castle’s facebook page.

Time for Reading

At this time of closed bookstores and cancelled readings the Munich-based bookshop Buchpalast is launching a special Easter offer for Quint Buchholz’s three newest publications.

Quint Buchholz has hand-signed and added a little drawing to ten copies of each book, „The Bliss of Slowness“ (2019), „To Everything There Is a Season“ (2020) and „The Ocean Book“ (2020). They will be shipped to customers on a first-come, first-serve basis.
