I've said it before and I'll say it again: you really must check out the Buchstabenmuseum in its new home, tucked at the top of the escalators in a dingy shopping center off Karl-Liebknecht-Straße. Wonderful. I've translated their new brochure into English and I'd love an extra pair of eyes to check there are no apostrophes missing. If you've got fifteen minutes to help this (just a few paragraphs really) do let me know (email link in the left column).
Also: Run by friends, Berlin's annual poetry festival Poetry Hearings has always been dear to my heart. There's a special preview tonight at the Direktorenhaus; John Hartley Williams, Catherine Hales, MC Jabber and Alistair Noon will read. Will Hudson's cakes be served? We can hope!
