Bernhard Schlink, international bestselling author of The Reader  and  Guilt About the Past  makes his Writers Festival debut with his latest novel,  The Weekend.  Old friends and lovers reunite for a weekend in a secluded country home after spending decades apart. But this isn’t just any reunion, and their conversations about the old days aren’t your typical reminiscences: After twenty-four years, Jörg, a convicted murderer and terrorist, has been released from prison. Passions are pitted against pragmatism, ideas against actions, and hopes against heartbreaking realities.
