Solothurn is the capital town of the canton Solothurn. The canton where I was born and grew up, my roots are exactly in a geographical region called „Niederamt“ and it’s on the foothills of the jurassic-range.
I moved at the age of 24 to the neighbour-canton Aargau and I live since then here.
Solothurn is also well-known for the annual literature days. Well-known or nearly famous authors come here to introduce their new books with readings. It was a honour for me to be here, being a member of the femscript-network of writing women and introduce my book at the stand to the visitors.
I had the pleasure to join Feridun Zaimoglu’s introduction and new book, it was very amusing and a little bit different from the common readings, we had a lot to laugh. Feridun has an unbeatable good sense of humour!

The ASIS (Association of the italian writers in Switzerland) has been invited to take part at the book fair in St. Louis. I had no reading there, we „only“ had our stand and introduced our association to the visitors and make it well-known to the neighbour-country.
Next to our stand, there was a man creating paper and
this was very interesting to see, how paper comes out!
For the 2nd time I was invited for a reading at the book fair in Basel. This time I took the opportunity to make the IG Secondas and our ideas well-known too, wearing the shirt and sensitize to the coming election about releaved naturalization.
I wrote about the topic migration and I am a daughter of the 1st generation imigrants, so my background is done and I am like many others in a transition generation. In a few months there will be the important election about naturalization of imigrants, I’ll write in a later article about!
go for the 2nd time!
