Brunch With Daniel De Roulet | A Sunday In The Mountains

Sun | 12pm

12PM Brunch
1PM Reading in French language
1:30PM Daniel de Roulet in discussion with Gianni Jetzer

The non-fiction novel “A Sunday in the Mountains” by Daniel de Roulet instantly created a stir in Switzerland. To admit a crime (de Roulet set fire in German press tycoon Axel Springer’s chalet 30 years earlier) in form of a book was an effective way to challenge Swiss law and order. De Roulet will read from the novel above as well as from his earlier book “Double”. The wider context of both books will be the subject of a discussion with Gianni Jetzer .

Tour & refreshments: $7.00
*Complimentary for Members and Friends of Swiss Institute

Please RSVP before August 23:
