Novels, nonfiction, poetry, and cabaret

Celebrated book launches by bestselling authors and small events for those in the know take place every day in Berlin. Whether you are interested in fiction, non-fiction, or poetry, the capital's stages offer readings and a varied programme in every genre. If you prefer to listen to humorous short stories about Berlin, you should check out a reading at Chaussee der Enthusiasten or LSD. Lectures on history and society are held regularly in libraries and adult education centres. Or you can attend a reading under the stars at one of the city's planetariums.
