Alles is Anana. Tenth Caribbean Literature Day

The book Dat wij zongen will be baptised by Winti priest Maran Markelo and the first copy presented to the greatest living Dutch-Caribbean poet, Jit Narain from Suriname. In rounds of discussions led by Raoul de Jong and Julien Ignacio, we hear from many of the writers featured in the collection. In other interludes Charlotte Doornhein commemorates the recently deceased Diana Lebacs; Raoul de Jong reads from his successful novel Jaguarman; Michiel van Kempen highlights the undeservedly unknown Antillean anti-colonialist Medardo de Marchena; and a mystery guest puts Ronald Snijders – winner of the Boy Edgar Prize – under the spotlight. The event is moderated by Sarita Bajnath, from the Leesoffensief reading programme.
