    Author's reading

    Axel Hacke
    “Alle Jahre schon wieder”

    A cheerful and contemplative evening about Christmas in childhood and as an adult, about misunderstood Christmas carols and also about a little king called December.

    Axel Hacke's readings are as funny as they are whimsical, as spontaneous as they are carefully planned. And because he has written countless stories in decades as an author and columnist (including a whole book about Christmas), there are plenty of anecdotes, columns, stories for a humorous and profound afternoon, including a short textual review of a very special, crazy year.
