Update: 2020-09-23


Our guest this week, Tabby Pawlitzki, is helping us continue our series on Global Readers. Once a season, we talk with a book lover who grew up in another country but has made the United States their home. In seasons 1 and 2 we talked to readers from Somalia and Ireland. In Season 3 we are exploring Germany. Fortunately Instagram has made meeting book-loving people who come from all over the world much easier which is how we connected with Tabby. She joined us remotely from her home in Los Angeles.

Tabby moved from Germany to the United States as a teenager where she struggled a bit to understand American English versus the British English she had been taught in her home country, but she came to appreciate the American educational system which she found more inclusive. Tabby didn’t read much in her teen years but came to love literature again in her 20s by reading Jane Austen. Now she is a pastry chef and co-host of the Modern Life podcast where she combines her love of literature and cinema by discussing book to movie adaptations.

Tabby talks to us about why she thinks texts by German writers have the reputation of being very heavy, what destination in Germany you should definitely visit if you are a book lover, what is one of the strangest book to movie adaptations she has talked about on her podcast, and which of her favorite fairy tales hasn’t been Disney-fied.
