Author Till Raether reads from his book "Bin ich schon depressiv, oder ist das noch das Leben?"

Depression can affect anyone, and it is often difficult to recognise. Till Raether was often sad and exhausted in his life - again and again, for weeks. And just as often he asked himself whether this was depression or whether it was just normal, grey life taking its toll on him. In his book, Till Raether talks openly about an illness he has lived with for many years and which he often tried to mask with great energy. He writes about his hunt for recognition, his helplessness and being overwhelmed and the constant thought that he should just pull himself together - and about the breakdown. An honest, warm book about a life situation that is familiar to many people.

The "Marburger Literaturforum e.V.", "Kulturelle Aktion Marburg - Strömungen e.V.", the "Bündnis gegen Depression Marburg-Biedenkopf e.V." and the "Marburger Buchhandlung Jakobi" with the kind support of the Rowohlt Verlag is pleased to present a reading by Till Raether from his book "Bin ich schon depressiv, oder ist das noch das Leben? Following the reading, there will be an opportunity for a talk with the author.
