A doughty champion of his local culture.(Poet Tom Hubbard)Your performance at the city hall was soooooooooo good! Christoph thought it was excellent! (Carolyn)



Hi friends,

I'm looking forward to be being back in Tuebingen from 19th to 23rd September 2016.

I'll be touring the old town and rendering many of my Tuebingen poems at several locations with accordionist Peter WeiƟ from 18.00 to 19.30 on Tuesday 20th September starting in the Holzmarkt, along the Platanenallee and ending at the Rathaus, with a performance at Weinhaus Beck from 20.00 . Thanks to Michael Raffel of the Tuebingen Buecherfest and Stephan Klingebiel at the Kulturamt and poet and translator Carolyn Murphey Melchers for their help in organising this.

There is also an event to celebrate the Tuebingen/Durham literary exchange on Thursday 22nd September 20.00 at the Hesse Kabinett, Heckenhauer's bookshop when I'll perform with young Tuebingen poets Sara Hauser, Manuela Schmidt and Florian Neuner. Michael Raffel will lead a discussion of the exchange after the readings.

2017 is the 30th anniversary of the literary exchange and Manuela Schmidt and Florian Neuner will visit Durham during the year and I'll re-visit Tuebingen with other Durham guests.

Best wishes,

Dr Keith Armstrong
