An Advent Service of Seven Carols and Seven Lessons
The "Munich English Choir" offers a lovely Carol Service at Kosterkirche Arch-Abbey of St. Ottilien, their specialty being the singing of the English "Advent Carol Service" on the evening before the 1st Advent. The Christmas story is told from the foretelling of the prophets in the Old Testament and then the Annunciation to Our Lady in the New Testament up to the birth of Our Lord. Following each Lesson a Carol is sung by the choir, based on the text of the Lesson or a different advent text. The congregation then responds with a congregational carol, which is a hymn based on an Advent or Christmas text.
The "Munich English Choir" are semi-professional singers who have a passion for english choral music. The choir was founded in 2010 by the English Organist and Choirmaster Stephen Norton and now has over 36 members. The choir recently returned from a very successful tour to England singing in Gloucester, Birmingham and Coventry cathedrals.
St. Ottilien, is located about 40 km outside of Munich just west of the Ammersee near A96, also easily reachable by train or s-bahn.

October - Egalia's Daughters
Egalia's Daughters: A Satire of the Sexes by Gerd Brantenberg.
An interesting thought-provoking satire on gender roles and in particular the fortunes of one "masculinist" boy who tries to fight against the oppression of his gender. It's an upside-down society, in which men are repressed and taken advantage of, and women have all the power.
November - The History of Bees
The History of Bees, A Novel by Maja Lunde
The Founding Gardeners
The follow up to the award-winning and critically acclaimed history of British gardening, this is the story of how George Washington, Thomas Jefferson, John Adams and James Madison's passion for nature, plants, agriculture and gardens shaped the birth of America. The Founding Gardeners offers a fascinating look at the revolutionary generation from the unique and intimate perspective of their lives as gardeners, plantsmen and farmers.
