My experience with the literary scene is that of one gigantic bore, writers come to events to sell their books to other writers, they drink too much wine and that makes them whine. They discuss their latest projects and admire each other. That is what I thought until I attended the Podium 15th celebrations. My publisher Joost Nijsen, invited some of his writers and we all read from our works. I brought my nine month old and she sat quietly with my husband in the dark night club inside the Trouw building.
