Together with Erik Simon and Hannes Riffel, Hardy will answer the question “What does an editor actually do” – on Friday, May 19, from 12 to 1 p.m. in Atelier 4. He will also meet with author Michael Marrak on Thursday, May 18, from 7 to 8 p.m. to talk about the latter’s new book “Lex Talionis II: De Profundis” (both program items in German).
