Join us for a book reading & signing with Thorsten Nagelschmidt & Tim DeMarco, author & translator of For What It's Worth: Was Kostet Die Welt. Free & open to the public.
About For What It's Worth: Was Kostet Die Welt: For What It’s Worth takes readers on a roller-coaster ride of emotions following Bohemian bartender Meise as he blows his inheritance left by his dead father to live like his father never did. After road-tripping across America, adventuring in Africa, and partying across Europe, he uses the remaining money to embark on one last trip: to a vineyard in rural West Germany. Amidst the wine and hangovers, Meise is also confronted with a culture shock unlike any other. Spending time with his career-focused and life-loving guest family forces him to ask himself the questions about his own life he's been trying to avoid, culminating in a showdown at the village’s main summer event: the Wine Fest. Tragic and humorous, with acute observations and no shortage of black humor, Nagelschmidt allows his (anti)hero to fail – by his own hand or others’ is up to the reader to decide.
