FREITAG AM DONNERSTAG

The «FREITAG am Donnerstag» (literally: FRIDAY on Thursday) lecture series was originally begun with the assistance of swiss-miss.com and is now presented in cooperation with REPORTAGEN magazine. The series provides a look at one of the most fascinating forms of journalism and encourages discussion about it. REPORTAGEN authors give insights into the stories behind their stories, describe the obstacles they face and the tough research they perform - all in the intimate setting of the FREITAG stores.
