A German poet will be taking part in two public readings when he visits County Durham later this month.
Tibor Schneider will be in Durham from October 22 until October 25 as part of a literary exchange which has been active since 1987.
Tibor, who is from the city of Tübingen – which is twinned with Durham City – will also attend Durham Book Festival events during his visit.
The visit has been organised by local poet Dr Keith Armstrong, which the help of Durham County Council’s international relations team as part of its work to support and develop town-twinning arrangements.
