May 16, 2013

We’re delighted to take part in the second readers’ day part of Around the World in 80 Books. This reading feast features some of the very best books in the world and is organised by Oxygen Books in association with the Essex Book Festival, the Arts Council and Anglia Ruskin University.

You’ll be entertained by Kate Mosse, the author of Labyrinth and bestselling Venice-based author Michelle Lovric; with contributions from publishers: Oxygen Books, Peirene Press & Holland Park Press, cultural institutes: Goete Institute, Institut Francais & English Pen and translator Feyza Howell, plus competitions, workshops, goody bags, book lists and much more.

Arnold Jansen op de Haar, writer, poet, as well as Holland Park Press’s literary adviser and expert on Dutch literature, will hold two workshops which will give English readers a temping taste of Dutch writers & poets. Previous knowledge of Dutch literature is not required.

The Dutch literature workshop, full of interesting and occasionally hilarious snippets of information, was extremely popular at the previous readers’ day. So make sure you book in time.
