How to live a life in the French Resistance? How does a private life as a member of the communist party succeed? The author Anne Weber was awarded the German Book Prize 2020 for “Annette, an epic of heroines”.

The jury’s statement said: “The power of Anne Weber’s narrative can match the power of her heroine: It is breathtaking how fresh the old form of the epic sounds here, and with what ease Weber condenses the life story of French resistance fighter Anne Beaumanoir into a novel about courage, resilience, and the struggle for freedom.” There is a pull to keep reading or – as the fringe ensemble now makes possible in its reading of the first part of the book – to listen.

The performance on August 24 will take place “outdoors and on location” as part of the Bonn Summer of Culture 2021 program and is supported by the Federal Government Commissioner for Culture and the Media (BKM) with funds from “NEUSTART KULTUR”.
