Authors Martina Clavadetscher, Max Annas and Thomas Raab visit RIS Swiss Section - Deutschsprachige Schule Bangkok
On 16 September 2019, our school hosted the three authors: Martina Clavadetscher (Switzerland), Max Annas (Germany) and Thomas Raab (Austria). Visiting authors and journalists are not uncommon for our school and are a great opportunity for the students to meet creative and innovative people in person.
All authors read excerpts from their works on the concepts of future, utopia and dystopia and then discussed the content and their writing with the young audience. They really met the challenge of addressing the students from our grades 8 - 12 successfully and managed to excite them about literature.
RIS Swiss Section - Deutschsprachige Schule Bangkok was able to host these interesting guests with the help and support of the Swiss, Austrian and German Embassies in Bangkok. A big thank you to them and also the Goethe Institute in Bangkok whose director, Ms. Maren Niemeyer, moderated this reading session.
