Around 14 interested people joined us on Monday, July 18, to listen to writer and journalist Ingrid Kölle, who was presenting her new book 'Neuseeland - ein Länderporträt'.
Ingrid shared the experience she enjoyed while working on this book and talked about the process of writing. She then read passages from her book, which gives an insight into nature, culture, politics and economy of Aotearoa, but also points to the danger of this unique environment. The fluid style of her writing and her experience as a broadcaster, made listening to her very enjoyable.
Ingrid has worked for the German Broadcasting Corporation (ARD) for over 30 years. She has travelled the world and taught German in Great Britain, Sweden and New Zealand. In 2003 she returned to Wellington, New Zealand, where she has studied art and creativity, teaches free form dance and continues writing documentaries for German Radio. Doris Evans
