Yes, UNESCO World Book Day is on us. Today, April 23, books are being celebrated all over the world. And to join the festivities, indieberlin is giving away two boxes of books. One in English and one in German.
The English box contains Noel Maurice’s “The Berlin Diaries,” as well as a bunch of review copies selected by Polly Trope, our literary editor. Read up on her recent reviews, and maybe you can guess which books she’ll put in your box…
The German box will have two Berlin books, Thilo Bock’s novel “Tempelhofer Feld,” reviewed just two weeks ago, and Björn Kuligk’s collection of stories and vignettes “Großraumtaxi,” for which the review is forthcoming. Our literary editor for German-language literature, Claudia Rapp, will throw in her own novel “Summer Symphony,” a story of Vikings, rock festivals, time travel, groupies, and the love of music.
To win, all you have to do is send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org, with the subject “books” for the English-language box, and “Bücher” for the German one. Send it to us by April 26, don’t forget your postal address, and we’ll send you your books in early May. Good luck!
And if you read in German, the official “Welttag des Buches“-website features a cool contest for readers, too.
