20. Gerbersauer Lesesommer

Since 2003, the Gerbersau Summer of Reading has been a cultural highlight with its musically framed readings from the oeuvre of Hermann Hesse. This year, visitors can once again be inspired by a symbiosis of music and words. With six readings and a literary lecture taking place on Friday evenings from July 5 to August 9 at 19:30 at different venues, the 20th Gerbersauer Lesesommer focuses on Hesse's life in Calw from schoolboy to poet.
