The Berlin Writers' Workshop and KN: Raum für Kunst im Kontext present an evening with Megan Fernandes and Bennett Sims. We're excited to welcome Sims for the Berlin launch of White Dialogues, a collection of stories that "moves from slow-burn psychological horror to playful comedy, bringing us into the minds of people who are haunted by their environments, obsessions, and doubts."

Free entry. Limited seating.
