Goal of the Activity

To celebrate National Reading Month, to promote international literature culture and bring literature lovers together to have good time :D


In honor of Dr. Theodor Seuss Geisel's birthday, March is designated as National Reading Month. He was an american author with german ancestors, who gave birth to one of the most well-known Christmas character „Grinch“.
We, ESN Freiburger, want to celebrate this day with you guys.
That‘s why we are inviting you to our event „ESN Literature Night“ on 29.03.22.
It will take place in a cozy living room located at Beckesepp Nägeleseestr. 4, 79102 Freiburg. We meet at 19:00 in front of Beckesepp.

The event is free of charged and we will provide drinks and snacks for you!
The only thing you need to bring with you to help us make the night completed: is a piece of „your favourite literature“.

it can be any form of literature, ranging from poems, stories, lyrics, books,
and from any country, language, and era.
Also on 21st of March is the World Poetry Day and the 27th is the World Theater Day
So if you want to bring something related to those days, it would be awesome!

And it can be short
„Ein jeder sieht, was er im Herzen trägt“
- Johann Wolfgang von Goethe

or long
„First they came for the socialists, and I did not speak out—
Because I was not a socialist.
Then they came for the trade unionists, and I did not speak out—
Because I was not a trade unionist.
Then they came for the Jews, and I did not speak out—
Because I was not a Jew.
Then they came for me—and there was no one left to speak for me.“
-Martin Niemöller

The key of the night is the „sharing moment“, when we all exchange our beloved literature with each other.
There will be no contest :)
But at the end of the night.. we hope everyone goes back home with a heart and mind fuller of joy and memory, which hopefully will be cherished and passed forward.
