In Digitization, Women



In this TOLEDO video, specially designed for German-speaking audiences, literary translator Frank Heibert and Québec author Karoline Georges present Georges’ novel “De Synthese”, which will be published in German translation (Synthese) by the publisher Secession in early October. In addition to a fascinating conversation and a bilingual reading of selected passages, the video shows how Karoline Georges creates the avatars that are at the heart of this award-winning novel.


This project is part of the literary program related to Canada’s Guest of Honour presentation at the Frankfurt Book Fair 2020/21. It is supported by TOLEDO, the Québec Government Office in Berlin and the Weltlesebühne e.V..
