Once a year we have a week to promote literature called "Boekenweek". There are all kinds of activities and and lectures in bookstores and libraries with writers. Last weekend the library of Almere had invited two wellknown authors, "Bart Chabot", see his sculpture here above.
And here in reality.
And "Joost Zwagerman".
Sorry for the blurry quality of the photos, it was rather dark inside.
When you buy a dutch book in this week you get a present in the form of a little book specialy written for the theme of the year. In the library is an exhibition of these books, collected through the years, by the husband of fellowblogger
At her blog you see a picture of this years present. We both had a nice afternoon with lectures and music.
