As announced in the last Wooster Sauce, a special Wodehouse event will take place at Degenershausen – Plum’s German retreat for the summers of 1941 and 1942, after he was released from internment camp

Honouring Wodehouse at Degenershausen

The event will take place on May 20 at the Degenershausen landscape park in Saxony-Anhalt, Germany. The focal point will be the baptism of the ‘Wodehouse-Linde’, a tree under which Plum often relaxed. The event is also a chance to celebrate the centenary of the first Wodehouse publication in Germany. The programme is likely to consist of a thematic park tour and a lecture from a newly published translation, among other things.
