Earlier in the year I was looking forward to telling you about the launch of the German version of my book which was to have taken place at the ORF RadioKulturhaus RadioCafe in Vienna on 31 March. Unfortunately instead of travelling to Austria as planned, I spent a few weeks in hospital with a severe chest infection.
Although I am well on the mend now, I am not permitted to fly for some months so the official presentation has had to be postponed and will now take place on September 18th. However, the book itself is available from local bookshops or can be ordered from www.amazon.com quoting the title ‘Rosl und ihre Tochter or the ISBN number: 978-3-902950-055.
My publishers, Milena Verlag, has been busy arranging publicity and last week I spent a day with Wolfgang Paterno, the Assistant Cultural Editor of Profil, who came to my home to interview me for an article which is due to appear in early April.
This was followed earlier this week by a visit from a crew from ORF TV’s London office to film an in-depth interview with me. A short 50 seconds version will be broadcast on ORF2 at 1pm on 31 March on the news programme ‘ZIB13’. This will be followed by a two minute version being shown in the programme ‘Heute Mittag’ which commences at 13.15pm.
You may also like to watch out for a more extended piece which is to be shown on the Channel 3sat culture programme ‘Kulturzeit’ during the period 14 – 18 April.
I do hope you will enjoy reading the book and the article in Profil and have an opportunity to catch the television broadcasts.
