Robert Walser Reading. Friday July 15. 6:00pm, Culture lab on Site Arch 5, Forth Street, Newcastle, Tyne and Wear NE1 3PJ.

Short stories by the Swiss author Robert Walser (1878-1956) read by Gabriele Heller, Claire Webster Saaremets and Tim Bennett with contemporary compositions, inspired by Walsers Work. “From an adjoining building came the esteemed 58-year old poet, accompanied by the warden. I was struck by his childlike expression, red-flushed cheeks, blue eyes, and trim, golden mustache. He was already turning gray at the temple. His well-worn collar and necktie were set somewhat crookedly, his teeth not in the best condition. When Dr. Hinrichsen wanted him to button the top button of his vest, Robert rebelled: `No! The top button must remain open!"
Carl Seelig's memoir Wanderungen with Robert Walser. There will be drinks and nibbles and an open discussion about Robert Walsers work
The above, from respected jazz singer Gabby, suggests it could be of interest.
