The program of the Rheingau Literatur Festival from September 13 to September 23, 2018

WeinLese 2018

On the occasion of the autumn jubilee vintage, a special literary vintage will take place between the 13th and the 23rd of September 2018 in unique cultural centers of the Rheingau. Pittoresque wineries, rustic sparkling wine cellars and the romantic Schwarzenstein castle, reminiscent of mediaeval architecture, invite you to go hand in hand with literature. The concept of the "WeinLese" is as simple as it is convincing. The focus of every event is the dialogue with the writers, who give samples from current or previously unpublished works. Together with our renowned moderators Prof. Dr. Heiner Boehncke (Artistic Director of the Rheingau Literaturfestival), Ruth Fühner (moderator hr2-kultur), Andreas Platthaus (FAZ-Literaturchef) and Martin Maria Schwarz (moderator hr2-kultur) immerse you intensively in the presented works, learn more about the background and understand connections.

From May 2018 you can find here the complete program of the Rheingau Literature Festival 2018!
