Kader Abdolah & Funda Müjde: Literary Contraband
Just picture this amazing duo: writer Kader Abdolah and cabaret artist, actress and columnist Funda Müjde. Both will personally recommend their favourite book. They will tell you specially why you should read it. They use their most beautiful words to describe that one book, a book from their native country that has not yet been translated into Dutch, but which should have been translated ages ago.
In this program, Writers Unlimited shines a spotlight on books that remain undiscovered in the Netherlands, great books that have not yet found their way to the Netherlands or the rest of the world. The writers take up the challenge to convince you - and hopefully a publisher - that their chosen books must be translated.
It will be twice the treat, because Abdolah and Müjde know how to seduce, entertain and enthuse an audience. A unique pair. We predict a marvellous and compelling Saturday afternoon at the festival in The Hague. Don't miss it!
Right after the performance, Funda Müjde en Kader Abdolah will be at the Van Stockum Bookshop in the lobby for a booksigning session.
