Wladimir Kaminer, author of the popular novella “Russendisko”, will speak and read from his texts at Emory University on Tuesday, October 2, at 7:30pm in the Oxford Building’s 3rd Floor. (Kaminer will read in German.)
Born in Moscow in 1967, Kaminer moved to Berlin just as the Wall was coming down. A keen observer of cultural life in Berlin, Kaminer adopted German as his literary language and began to publish a series of texts that turned him into one of the most popular authors in contemporary Germany.
