I just received this email from my German friend, Christina Schreck, a resident of my mother’s home town, Stockstadt am Rhein:
“I want to tell you about ‘Motherland-Reading’ in Rüsselsheim yesterday evening. There were the two ladies from the theater in Rüsselsheim who acted out a dialogue from your book, Mutterland. Do you remember, it was similar to the reading in Rüsselsheim in 2006 during your visit?
“It was great! The house was full. People were so interested in (Edith’s) life and your progress in writing. They wanted to know more about your new book.
“A lot of people asked me about you. They were so interested!”
