The nominations for the public competition readings on 20 May at the Literarisches Colloquium are: María Cecilia Barbetta, Alida Bremer, Stephan Groetzner, Anja Kampmann, Sebastian Polmans, Fridolin Schley. In addition to a reading from the awardwinning manuscript and a talk with the prizewinner, Katja Lange-Müller and Uwe Timm will read texts by Alfred Döblin.
