Book Launch in St Moritz

On the 8th of February 2017, William Barton's new book, Mountain Aesthetics in Early Modern Latin Literature, was presented at the TirolBerg area in the heart of St Moritz, in the context of the Alpine Skiing World Cup 2017. After introductory words by Karlheinz Töchterle, professor of Latin at the University of Innsbruck, and by Florian Schaffenrath, director of the LBI, William presented his book in front of many participants – among them Dora Filli, director of the library of St Moritz – and gave a couple of interviews to the journalists who came specifically for this event. After the presentation, the guests enjoyed traditional tyrolian refreshments sponsored by TirolBerg.
