Within the context of Livre Paris, the largest book fair in France, the Netherlands’s embassy and the Dutch Foundation for Literature organise a literary evening in Paris under the title: ‘Is this the real life? Vrai ou faux?’.

Two Dutch, one Flemish and two French authors - Toine Heijmans, Maylis de Kerangal, Florence Nioville, Dimitri Verhulst and Niña Weijers will adress questions such as ‘To what extent does literature resemble reality?’ and ‘What is the role of literature in times of fake news and alternative facts?’. Margot Dijkgraaf, connoisseur of both French and Dutch literature, will present the evening.

Main language of the evening is French. If you wish to join, please make your reservation here.
