Adventures by the Book is excited to partner with The Worldview Project, a non-profit organization whose mission is to promote greater cross-cultural awareness, knowledge, and understanding on a German Dinner Adventure with the first German author to ever become a #1 New York Times bestseller, Bernhard Schlink. In 1997 Schlink’s novel, The Reader, a story of love and secrets, horror, and compassion unfolding against the haunted landscape of postwar Germany, was published to great acclaim. This internationally bestselling and award-winning novel made Bernhard Schlink one of the most well respected German authors in modern history. Now in 2017, Schlink is back with a novel to thrill his fans: The Woman on the Stairs is a novel about obsession, creativity, and love.

Join us at the German American Society of San Diego for the opportunity to meet this internationally acclaimed author and learn how Schlink was inspired to bring together a missing painting, a mysterious woman, her husband, and a lover in one intricate and poignant book. Doors will open at 6:30 pm with an authentic, delicious, and all-inclusive German meal with choice of wine or beer served at 7 pm. Includes German dinner, choice of beer or wine, donation to The Worldview Project, author talk, book signing, and the chance to meet the author.
