Interview with Judith Schalansky: The ninth author of Future Library, 2022

Happy to share this interview with author Judith Schalansky, which we filmed in Oslo for the Future Library and edited in London. Schalansky is the ninth author of the Future Library project and in May 2023 she handed over her manuscript to be kept unpublished until 20114.

Judith Schalansky, born in Greifswald in 1980, lives in Berlin and works as a writer, book designer, and editor (of the prestigious natural history list at Matthes und Seitz). Her books, including the international bestseller Atlas of Remote Islands and the novel The Giraffe’s Neck, have been translated into more than twenty languages.
