Cornelia Funke: „Märchen sind ein Blick ins Herz eines Landes“

Nach den Tintenwelt-Büchern ist Cornelia Funke mit der Reckless-Saga ein neuer Coup gelungen: Band 3, „Das goldene Garn“, steht weit oben in den Charts. Im Interview spricht sie über Fantasy & Flucht.

Im dritten Band ihrer „Reckless“-Saga „Das goldene Garn“ reist Cornelia Funke mit ihren Figuren durch die Märchenwelten Osteuropas. Wie schon die ersten Bände und zuvor ihre „Tintenwelt“-Romane landete auch Teil drei auf Anhieb weit oben in den Bestsellerlisten. Am Sonnabend um 16 Uhr stellt Funke, die in Los Angeles lebt, im Theater an der Parkaue „Das goldene Garn“ vor. Im Interview erklärt sie, warum sie Märchen für unverzichtbar hält und welche besondere Beziehung sie zu Berlin hat.
