TV programme on SR/ARD, 2018

The publishing house Calambac has brought out a story by Vernon Lee from 1927. The British writer, who once had a very wide readership, has hardly been translated in Germany, and this is one of the main criteria for translator and publisher Elena Moreno when choosing the authors she publishes: to look for literary quality that does not adapt to fashions and does not fade with the passage of time. Sven Rech visits Elena Moreno.

Buchgenuss 2014 / Review

Buchgenuss 2014 / Review

"Anyone who still dares to write a Christmas book in poem form today stops at no conventions. Its author, Nele Aron, tells the adventures of the Magi from her own point of view in wonderfully lush, original pictures, opening up entirely new cultural and religious perspectives. A recommended read for children and adults who love offbeat and sophisticated picture books." Quote from: Buchgenuss Autumn-Winter 2014, November supplement of BRIGITTE WOMAN
