someone at st. george's (berlin) had a really good idea:


Following a 2008 event to commemorate the work of David Foster Wallace,
where people read excerpts of his writings, St George's Bookshop has
organised a series of monthly readings. The idea is simple.

If you've ever read a piece of writing (non-fiction, fiction, essay, prose,
poetry, dialogue, monologue, whatever) that you've admired and which you'd
like to share, then this is the event for you.

Anyone can read an extract (of up to 3 pages), in any format, in any
language, on any topic, perhaps with a brief explanation of what this author
or piece of writing means to you. If you're not sure about reading something
yourself, you can ask someone else to do it for you. There'll probably be a
microphone, and the event should be as drone-free as possible. If you want
to read, just come along at eight with your book, and we'll take it from

To give you an idea, MC Jabber will kick off the first event with two short
dialogues, from David Foster Wallace's 'The Broom of the System' and
Jonathan Safran Foer's 'Extremely Loud & Incredibly Close'.
