We had the pleasure of welcoming Nikolina Skenderija-Bonet and Thomas Perle at Canetti House. Nikolina presented an excerpt from her dissertation, discussing the symbolism of language and the “tongue” in Canetti’s work.

Perle presented his partially autobiographical book, “We left because everyone left,” that deals with the emigration of a Romanian family from the perspective of a child. Both readings were followed by interesting discussions with questions, remarks and anecdotes from both the audience and the authors.
