Reading with Sabine Weigand
On October 20, 2017, the well-known writer Sabine Weigand read
in the Kulturhaus from her novel "Ich, Eleonore, Königin zweier Reiche".
The novel deals with one of the most dazzling female figures in world history and the eventful life of Eleanor of Aquitaine. In 1137 Eleonore, the most beautiful woman of her time, marries the King of France. But the marriage fails. Eleonore does the unheard of: she divorces. While her name is being pulled everywhere in the dirt, she marries again: Henry Plantagenet, the king of England. She rules with him, stands at the zenith of her power. But how is she supposed to act when Henry cheats on her?
Rarely have the visitors experienced a more entertaining reading at Kulturhaus Leutershausen.
Sabine Weigand tells and reads in such a way that the listener feels transported to the time of Eleonore.

21 artists opened their doors and invited to take part and linger.
The event was musically accompanied by the Leutershäuser Bands
"el'häuser" & "CrossOver".

Reading with Gerhard Winkler from Höchstetten
On March 24, 2017, Gerhard Winkler - at the invitation of the city library - read his first work "Die Müllsammlerin" at the Kulturhaus of Ochsenhof.
The Fränkische Newspaper from 27.03. write about the reading:
Listen to a reading for 90 minutes, sounds like boredom that everyone from the Training, the school or the university knows and should therefore be strictly avoided in their free time. The opposite is possible, Gerhard Winkler proved on Friday his audience ..........
The travel novel is the fictitious story of a divorced teacher who wants to experience more in his second half of life than just wait for his aging. It is a multi-faceted narrative call to all of us to live at least part of our dreams instead of sacrificing them to everyday life.
The team of the city library thanks Gerhard Winkler for the nice, entertaining evening.

Burkhard Rühl - Leutershausen
During this time (1967) he was very interested in pop art and he designed his first pictures in this art direction. Two small exhibitions, a newspaper article and a radio interview were the harvest of his first creative design phase.
In 1984, he met a person who changed his life.
With Bernhard Langwald he got a different understanding of nature, in summer camps he felt that nature have a very healing effect on him.
So in 1988 he decided to give up his previous life and go for a longer time in the nature. He sold his car, broke up his household, quit his job, grabbed his bike and drove to Africa for a year. He slept always outside and cooked by a self-made fire.
He recorded his journey by bicycle to Africa in his book "A Bike Trip to Africa", which can be found in our library. Other books such as "Little stories from my travels and from my life" or a book full of beautiful poems can be found here.
Various figures and colored pictures by Burkhard Rühl are exhibited in our library.
The large mosaic couch with the two tables in front of the Kulturhaus are also works of the versatile artist.
Further bike tours by Burkhard Rühl:
- a tour around the British Isle
- another to Scandinavia
- another around the Iberian peninsula
- some through France (the latter all playing as a recorder street musician) and a hike across Poland, Ukraine to Romania.
Review of the reading with Walter Langohr
read from his books
"Hooray, we have a Porsche"
"Slotted Ears Long-eared Tracto (h) ren"
"So beautiful, the time was beautiful".
Walter Langohr lives today in Marktheidenfeld. There he worked for 34 years as an agricultural engineer for a company. As a child, the now 75-year-old had experienced in his home village, as in the post-war era, the technology in agriculture introduced. In his books, Langohr tells about this time. The author also reports on the optimism and optimism that prevailed at the time. And again and again the stories are about the arrival of technology in the villages. Hardly to be overlooked is that above all the Bulldogs, who at that time were not tons heavy companions, like for example the "red Porsche", the author grew to the heart. In a humorous way, Langohr spoke of a bygone age, when life in the countryside was hard - but also had more time than today.

Suddenly she thinks she is out of her mind, she hears a strange voice in her head. Ben, a 30-year-old architect who also had a bad accident, is the one who Anni can talk to in her head.
Anni is very annoyed by Ben. She wants to get rid of his voice. But it develops in the course of time to mutual sympathy. The head talks become more intense. Anni and Ben want to get to know each other ....
