The opening evening of LIT:potsdam 2024 will be featuring Judith Schalansky and Helen Macdonald, two of the most prominent figures in international Nature Writing. Judith Schalansky, born in 1980 in Greifswald, is a wonderfully imaginative writer, whose "Atlas of Remote Islands" achieved rare international success in contemporary German-language literature. Schalansky is also the editor of the inspiring "Naturkunden" series at Matthes & Seitz, which celebrates its one hundredth volume just in time for the festival. British author Helen Macdonald, born in 1970, also stands out for her great creativity in her work, ranging from nature essays to offbeat thrillers. With her book mourning her deceased father, "H is for Hawk," Helen Macdonald scored a world bestseller.
