Nobel Prize Laureates Thomas Mann and Günter Grass have left a legacy of high literary value for Lübeck. But other writers have also characterised the literary history of Lübeck. Especially the local literature comes to the fore during the anniversary year - a good reason to give special attention to it at the HanseKulturFestival. Some authors present their own works, some make use of other authors' works. But the written word always becomes an experience.
