boekpresentatie zwart

This evening a group of writers from African descent will gather at a theater in the central Dutch town of Utrecht (not to be confused with the Utrecht in South Africa). They make use of the Dutch language, while living in Europe. We can call them Afropeans

At this occasion they will launch a book edited by Ebissé Rouw and Vamba Sherif. The title of the collection of stories is ZWART (Black). Writers will read from their stories and there will be discussions on identity, living between two cultures, working in a white literary culture etcetera.

More information (in Dutch) you will find here
