In his talk, Harman spoke about the sources and inspirations that Franz Kafka sights when writing his representation of the US in his novel, Amerika: The Missing Person. To conclude, Harman debuted a recent translation of a short story by Kafka.

Guest speaker Dr. Beverley Eddy's, Dickinson German professor emeritus, presentation on the lives of brother and sister Klaus and Erika Mann was both informative and interesting. "Danke" to German Club members and to German Club officers Gwyneth Van Son, Justin Brown, Jeffrey Lewek. And it wouldn't be a German dinner without the amazing efforts of Dining Service chefs.


Start with the "sweet" violin of Alex Strachen '13, an entertaining speech by German professor emeritus Wolfgang Müller, and the camaraderie of German students, faculty, and guests. Add Beef Rouladen with Burgundy Sauce, German Potato Salad, Schwäbische Käsespätzle (cheese noodles), German Butter Cake with mixed berries, and so much more.

A special "danke" to German Club members, to club officers Julie King, Geo Nikolov, Justin Brown, and Becky Payne, and to club advisor Professor Ed Muston.
