Dear Readers,

Have any of you seen the "Snowden kann hier bleiben" ("Snowden can stay here") signs hanging from windows in Berlin? I've seen one, and the image came to mind when I read "Body and Bytes: Privacy in the United States and Germany After Snowden," the inaugural post on a German culture blog called Cold Baths (started by two of my former classmates with German literature backgrounds). The post examines the body-driven view of privacy in the U.S. versus the data-driven notion of privacy in Germany. It's a thought-provoking read! 

If you're interested in German-American relations (and their literary outgrowths), the U.S. Embassy is bringing author Justin Go to speak at English Theatre Berlin tomorrow. In other news, The Reader Berlin has announced its summer intensive courses, and a new photo-based website is becoming a contact medium for literary Berliners.

Have a great week, and please keep referring friends to!

Cheers & Prost,

Justin Go at English Theatre Berlin
