The Berlin Journal: Celebrating 20 Years Of The American Academy In Berlin

Jan 6, 2015

The American Academy in Berlin

In the December, 2014 edition of Berlin Journal, the staff and fellows of The American Academy in Berlin celebrate the institution's 20th anniversary with comments both thoughtful and emotional by Federal President Joachim Gauck, Foreign Minister Frank-Walter Steinmeier, and Bard president, Leon Botstei.

Then, former Academy fellow Wolf Schäfer sits down with current fellow Monica Black to talk about German history and why they would rather sift through its darker parts.

Also, novelist and Academy fellow Adam Ross gives a dramatic reading from his next novel, Playworld​, and talks with host R. Jay Magill about the craft of writing fiction.
