Johann Peter Hebel (10 May 1760 – 22 September 1826) was a German short story writer and dialectal poet, most famous for his collection of alemannic tales “Schatzkästlein des rheinischen Hausfreundes” (Treasure chest of the family friend by the Rhine). This book was a collection compiled from his short stories “Kalendergeschichten” (Tales from the calendar). On the occasion of Hebel’s 250th birthday, we are able to present a recording of 6 of these “Kalendergeschichten”, read in the original German by Hans Hafen. You can find them here.
