(Program in German)

Is it even worth voting or demonstrating? Is the rule of law fair? Who are the really influential people in Berlin? And why do politicians often meet until the early hours of the morning? Conveying complicated issues to a broad audience is Marietta Slomka's profession.

In "Nachts im Kanzleramt," she explains in an entertaining and good-humored way how politics actually works. She takes her readers on a journey from the basics of democracy to the big questions of world politics, and repeatedly provides practical examples that explain how politics works - from fighting pandemics to greenwashing. Along the way, she offers a "crash course in economics" and insights into today's media world. Anyone who has read this book will be fit for any political debate!

An event by Literatur LIVE in cooperation with the Droemer Knaur publishing group, the Thalia bookstore and the TIPI AM KANZLERAMT.
