DEG Literature Club

Dear members and friends of the DEG,
We hope you are all doing fine and have found a way to cope with this special situation we are all in.

As you all know it may take some time until we can meet in person again. That's why some members of the DEG have been creative and come up with the idea of offering various online activities such as online quizzes/games, online presentations or founding a DEG Book Club (of course only virtually for the time being) in which we come together in a Jitsi video conference and discuss literature, recommend books we have read and so on. There are numerous options.

The next meeting of the DEG Literature Club will be on :

Thursday, 15th July 8 pm German time (7 pm British time): Present your favourite book (i.e. everyone is asked to introduce the others to his/her favourite book, on a voluntary basis, of course).

In case you are not on our mailing list for online activities, please register with me (Katrin) as soon as possible in case you would like to join us under:

I will then send you the link to the video conference as well as more information.
Don't hesitate to contact us for questions or further ideas and suggestions. We are happy to be there for you and to keep us all connected. It may take a while until we can meet again personally, so let's keep in touch virtually or if you wish by phone.
Stay safe and healthy.

Dear members and friends,

I hope that you are well and that you are coping with the crisis, which has been going on for such a long time now.

There's not much you can do to meet people, except going for walks, talking on the phone or meeting at Zoom or else.


That is why I would like to present an idea to you that might help you to deal with this difficult pandemic.

As going for a walk seems to be an activity that many people prefer at the moment, I think this could be a possibility to stay in contact or to renew it. If you belong to this group and you are looking for someone to come along,  you could drop me a line telling me where and when you prefer to meet. I will then put pairs together and let you know who you could go with and send an email to the two of you.

Please send an email to:

Stay healthy and optimistic!

Waiting for spring

Since the pandemic will probably stay with us for quite a while and it will take until 2022 until the last ones will be vaccinated against Covid-19, some of us have recently been thinking about how we can stay in touch.
Of course, we can and will move into the digital realm - but we thought of creating a tangible brochure for all of us.
The brochure will be called:
DEG, the Pandemic and me - okay, this is only the project name, you are invited to make suggestions.
All are welcome to contribute, it would be so great to have reports from Germany and from abroad.
Those who cannot jump into writing so easily can think about the following questions:
What does my everyday life look like?
What do I miss?
What will I do once we get back to normal?
If DEG emerges from the pandemic changed, what should it be like?
Photos can of course be published if the copyright is cleared.
We need the finished texts by Thursday, 25 February 2021.
Is there a minimum length? Nope.
Is there a maximum length? Maybe.
Language: your choice
Possible formats .doc, .pdf or also handwritten or typed on paper - then of course by normal post!
We would need to know whether the text should appear under your own name or with a pseudonym.
Please, write in the style you prefer; e.g. if a poem comes to your mind, just go ahead.
Have fun - we're looking forward to receiving your text.


Are there any questions about this? Always welcome!
Please contact Sabine:
Stay safe - stay healthy.
