German Center to Show Grass’ Work

October 22, 2002

LUEBECK, Germany (AP) _ Germany honored Nobel-winning author Gunter Grass with the opening of a center exhibiting his work.

The Gunter Grass House in Luebeck’s old town will show original manuscripts, sketches and sculpture by the author and hold a calendar of cultural events.

Officials expect some 30,000 visitors a year to the museum, which opened Sunday.

Grass, the author of ``The Tin Drum″ and ``Cat and Mouse,″ won the Nobel Literature Prize in 1999 _ the first German to secure the award since Heinrich Boell 27 years earlier.

Grass, who was born in Danzig, now the Polish port of Gdansk, has lived in the northern city of Luebeck since 1995.
