On Saturday, August 18th I will continue my series of literary events in Second Life about major short story writers of 20th century world literature with an evening about the Turkish story teller Sait Faik Abasiyanik (1906-1954), sometimes called “the Turkish Cechov” and generally considered the founding father of modern Turkish short prose. Apart from a short introduction and a lecture about Faik’s life and work, the evening will feature a reading of one of Faik’s finest stories by my fellow Thorsten Küper aka Kueperpunk Korhonen. Thanks to Manesse Verlag for the permission to read from the collection Geschichten aus Istanbul, translated into German by Gerhard Meier.
The evening will be in German language and start about 21:00 CET resp. 12:00 Second Life Time at the World Culture Hub, my international museum, event location and library in Second Life. The location’s SLURL is http://maps.secondlife.com/secondlife/Toivo/45/59/21
