Children’s book writer Evelien van Dort will make a promotional trip to Bonaire from 2 to 12 November. During the Children’s Book Week of the Caribbean Islands she will visit several schools, hold lectures for parents and teachers on the importance of reading, give a workshop to promote reading, and attend the opening of the Children’s Book Week. One of the bookstores at Bonaire will organize a book presentation.
Van Dort has been invited by the Stichting Lezen en Schrijven Bonaire. This foundation has received a contribution for travel expenses from the Dutch Foundation for Literature.
Last year, Evelien van Dort visited St. Eustatius for the Children’s Book Week.
