Local German Author Visiting University of Waterloo


(This bulletin piece announced the visit of a local author who writes and publishes in German. Published February 2015. To see the published version, click on the link and scroll down to the third story.)

A murder, a mysterious beating, a suspicious arrest: all happen at the world-famous Hannover fairgrounds during a computer exhibition in this local author’s first novel, published in German.

Daniela Wolff published Kurzsturz (Shortfall) in 2014. A resident of Canada since 2010, she lives and writes in Kitchener. Wolff has integrated various aspects of her life into this novel, though she says that no one died or was severely injured during the years she worked at the Hannover trade fair.

Wolff will be visiting the University of Waterloo on Monday, March 2 at 11:30 to read from her book and talk to students about working as an author, writing, and whatever else the students want to ask. This German-language event is open to the public.
