Something is missing when you can’t do live presentations of your new book. But for known reasons it’s not possible right now.

In order to sweeten the waiting time until the next reading for me and you, I am showing you a little trailer for a reading concert – a format that the musician Jörg Walter and I have developed. While I am reading from a book, and it’s pictures are shown on a screen, he improvises the right music on a historical reed organ to that. We already did this kind of reading for my graphic novel on H.G. Wells’ WAR OF THE WORLDS – the trailer below shows a new reading of this format that combines my picture book THE LIGHTS OF PARIS – ÉMILE AT THE WORLD FAIR and my graphic novel adaptation of 20,000 MILES UNDER THE SEA, which is currently in progress. We look forward to holding such readings again as soon as the situation allows it!
